Samsung Electronics selected as 4G LTE-A and 5G  radio to access network solutions by Videotron in Canada first time. Leveraging the global experience of 5G commercialization from leading 5G markets including Korea and the U.S., Samsung plan to speed up 5G deployments across the globe.

After many successful decades in the cable television and internet access business, Videotron deployed its wireless operation in 2010 and has been the fastest-growing new operator since then. Currently providing 4G LTE service, Videotron plans to launch commercial LTE-A and 5G services in late 2020.

Starting in early 2020, Samsung will deliver 4G LTE-A solutions across Quebec and Ottawa in which the solutions from Samsung include Massive MIMO and Dual-band base stations, supporting the operator’s 4G LTE frequencies, and 5G solutions for both 3.5GHz and 28GHz spectrum.

Providing commercially proven 4G LTE-A solutions and combined with 5G commercial solutions from global markets, Samsung will increase efficiency in accelerating the expansion of 5G service coverage to match pace with Canada’s 5G commercial launch, which is expected to take place in late 2020.

"We have been all over the world to find the best supplier suited to meet the evolving needs of our customers. This partnership will allow us to deliver the most advanced telecommunications solutions to Quebecers. While 4G technology has profoundly transformed telecommunications in the world, LTE Advanced and 5G will undoubtedly revolutionize the way we interact with our loved ones and the surrounding environment, said Jean François Pruneau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Videotron. “We want to be with our customers through these major changes and the choice of Samsung as a supplier is not a coincidence, we are convinced that they represent the best option to achieve this objective. Videotron has always been at the forefront of major technological changes and the arrival of 5G is no exception. Today's announcement is a very proud moment for us." 

“Signing a contract with Videotron to provide 4G LTE-A and 5G network solutions will be marked as a significant milestone for Samsung, and Samsung will be the part of evolving next generation of mobile communication technologies in Canada by delivering advanced technologies,” said Paul Kyungwhoon Cheun, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Leveraging the global experience of 5G commercialization from leading 5G markets like Korea and the U.S., Samsung will increase its position in 4G LTE and 5G vendor market.”
