In Line With New Wireless Code: Videotron Customers Get 24-Month Amortization 
MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/11/13 -- In keeping with its
commitment to always give its customers more, Videotron has announced
that, as of today, customers will be able to pay for all the mobile
devices they carry in 24 months with no increase in rates.  
"Since it entered the mobile telephone market exactly three years
ago, Videotron has always sought to differentiate itself from the
competition," said Manon Brouillette, President and Chief Operating
Officer of Videotron. "To do so, we have reshaped the market by
offering exceptional, unprecedented plans that deliver the best
mobile technology experience on the market." 
Same plans, same prices 
With this move, Videotron is eliminating the amortization periods
that tied consumers to a carrier for 3 years. In another example of
its inclination to do things differently, Videotron has also
announced that, unlike its competitors, it will not increase the
prices of its newly enhanced mobile plans. Videotron customers will
still be able to enjoy state-of-the-art mobile service, the full
power of Videotron's 4G network and an experience that is among the
best available today, all at the same price. 
In March 2013, Videotron overhauled and enhanced its mobile services
by introducing five all-inclusive mobile plans that make life easier
for customers and offer superior value.  
In addition to free long-distance calls among Videotron's nearly 3
million customers, mobile customers were also offered advantageous
new options that make international roaming rates much more
affordable and significantly reduce the cost of long-distance calls
in North America.
