MONTREAL -- Videotron has announced the launch of two new Internet access services that will further expand the limits of the Internet with some of the fastest download speeds in North America. Ultimate Speed Internet 30 and Ultimate Speed Internet 50 will deliver speeds of 30 mbps and 50 mbps respectively. The new services are tailored to the needs of modern connected families sharing one Internet link.

With the two new Ultimate Speed Internet services, Videotron becomes the first cable company in North America to offer such speeds on a cabled network. The roll-out of these services will begin in Laval, where they will be available to 112,000 homes.

Unsurpassed download speeds

To give an idea of the power of the new products, Ultimate Speed Internet 30 will make it possible to download a music track in two seconds and a movie of almost 2 GB in about eight minutes. With Ultimate Speed Internet 50, it will take ten seconds to download a full CD containing 10 tracks and five minutes for a movie of almost 2 GB.

The solution for connected families and households

Ultimate Speed Internet 30 and Ultimate Speed Internet 50 are ideal for households where several people use the Internet simultaneously for different purposes. For example, a four-member family where Dad is downloading a movie, Mom is shopping online, Junior is importing a video clip from the web and Sis is playing online video games can share a single Internet connection and everyone will experience the full potential their activity demands.

"As a provider of high-tech services, we strive to deliver the higher speeds and transfer limits that consumers, families and organizations need," said Manon Brouillette, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Content and Product Development, at Videotron. "The new modem, developed in collaboration with Cisco, combined with our robust and reliable network, now make it possible for us to offer the full entertainment experience that connected families are looking for."
