Videotron Ramping VoIP Rollout

Six months after launching PacketCable-based VoIP service in Quebec, Canadian MSO Videotron counted 62,500 customers as of August 12. That's an increase of 20,700 subscribers since June 30, equal to a 3,450 customer per week run rate for the first six weeks of the third quarter. That's a 67% improvement over the 2,069 VoIP subscriber additions per week Videotron averaged in the second quarter. With a head start over Rogers and Shaw, Videotron is now Canada's top cable VoIP provider. Look for Videotron's pace to continue to accelerate. On August 17 the MSO expanded availability for its VoIP service to include the Island of MontrŽal, building on its initial footprint in the QuŽbec City area. Videtron is now marketing VoIP service to 1.5 million homes in Quebec.
