Telus Mobility today announced the expansion of its next generation 1X wireless data network to centres in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island through a
reciprocal roaming/resale agreement with competitor Aliant Mobility.
“Bringing 1X service to new clients across Atlantic Canada demonstrates our commitment to providing consumers and business from coast to coast with seamless mobile wireless data and computing services,” said George Cope, Telus Mobility’s president and CEO.
Originally launched in Halifax and other major urban centres across Canada last June, the service is now available to approximately 24 million Canadians, or 75 per cent of the population. The Atlantic expansion adds coverage for 500,000 potential clients in centres such as Sydney, St. John’s, Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton and Charlottetown.
Offering mobile connections to the Internet and other data networks, 1X delivers both business-focused mobile computing and productivity solutions, and consumer applications such as interactive gaming, ringtone and image downloads, and other multimedia applications, the company said in a release.
