Shaw Communications (TSX:SJR.B;NYSE:SJR) on Friday announced that Freedom Mobile has launched its service in Victoria and Red Deer.

As quoted in the press release:

“At Freedom Mobile, we believe Canadians deserve better. Today’s announcement will bring competition and choice that are long overdue for the people living in Victoria and in the heart of central Alberta,” said Paul McAleese, President, Wireless, Shaw. “Canadians live big, digital lives in a mobile-first world where being connected is critical. Canadians should have wireless plans that fit their lifestyles and not have to worry about restrictive data limits and expensive overage fees.”

While Freedom Mobile continues to build and expand network coverage in Victoria and Red Deer, residents in these markets can now take advantage of introductory pricing available to receive 10GB of data and unlimited Canada-wide talk and text. These customers will also get access to Freedom Wi-Fi at over 100,000 hotspots across Western Canada to make it easier to stream, download and share at more locations.

Freedom Mobile’s launch in these markets comes after significant investments to upgrade and expand their network, including the ongoing deployment of Extended Range LTE 700 MHz spectrum which began in October 2018. This year, Freedom Mobile will be expanding to a total of 15 new communities in B.C., Alberta and Ontario, providing 1.3 million more Canadians with more affordable wireless options.
