April 10, 2019 /CNW/ – Iristel Inc., Canada’s fastest-growing telecom provider and owner of the Ice Wireless mobile network in remote areas, has won in auction important blocks of 600 megahertz spectrum in Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and all of Newfoundland and Labrador.
“This is exciting on many levels,” says Samer Bishay, President and CEO of both Iristel and Ice Wireless. “First, from a technology standpoint the 600 megahertz spectrum works exceptionally well in remote areas by covering longer distances so we’ll be able to enhance services in the Territories. Second, we can now offer the benefits of real competition to consumers and businesses in Newfoundland and Labrador and give them relief from the Big Three wireless oligarchs. This is an important step toward more choices, lower prices and higher quality cell phone services for Newfoundlanders, Labradorians and those in remote areas of Canada’s North, including Quebec.”
