Canada's Videotron Tests Cisco's WideBand for 100 Mbps Cable Access

Videotron, which serves 1,553,000 cable television customers in Québec, will begin testing a cable wideband solution that delivers Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps, which is five times faster than its current Extreme Plus high speed Internet service.

In a joint announcement with Cisco, Videotron reported that its pilot implementation has now been running for more than a month. The companies are projecting they will reach the 100 Mbps objective in the next few months.

"This alliance enables us to stand far ahead of the competition with regards to delivery of Internet services, not only in Quebec, but across Canada. We are committed to offering Internet users the fastest and highest performance network on the market, and today, we are announcing that the technological breakthrough is attainable in the near future," said Robert Dépatie, Videotron President and CEO.
