Mobilicity Expanding Network Coverage in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Edmonton

Startup wireless carrier Mobilicity today announced plans to widen its unlimited network.

West of Toronto it will reach Milton, Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton. East of Toronto, Mobilicity will launch in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa. And in Ottawa, the carrier will focus on building out the network in Barrhaven, Orléans and Cumberland.

Mobilicity also confirmed it is in the process of extending its unlimited network within the Greater Vancouver Area to include White Rock, Pitt Meadows and the Richmond-Surrey commuter corridors. And in Edmonton, Mobilicity is expanding around St. Albert to the north and southward to the airport.

“We’ve spent the last year on network densification to provide a great network experience amidst tremendous growth in our existing service area,” said Mobilicity President and Chief Operating Officer Stewart Lyons. “Now it’s time to expand outward and bring Mobilicity’s smart, affordable wireless service to more Canadians than ever.”

The company yesterday announced it applied for Official Holiday Status of National Break Your Wireless Contract Day to enable Canadians to get out of their wireless contracts without incurring unfair, punitive early contract termination fees. And last week, Mobilicity confirmed it will upgrade its HSPA+-enabled network to 4G later this year.
