5G at Videotron

What is 5G technology?
5G is the 5th generation of wireless network technology. It offers three major improvements:
  • Faster speed
  • Greater capacity
  • Reduced latency (round trip transmission time from the device to the server)
Greater efficiency
Over time, 5G networks will transmit data up to 20 times faster, seamlessly connect about 1 million devices per km2, and reduce latency to close to zero (1 millisecond as opposed to the current average of 50 milliseconds).
Infinite possibilities
In practical terms, 5G will provide optimized connectivity for online gaming and new opportunities for artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality, and it will take your smart home to a whole new level with a refreshed connectivity experience.

5G coming soon at Videotron

Like all Canadian mobile providers, Videotron has already started deploying its 5G network. Our experts are working to optimize our facilities to implement 5G in selected urban areas in December 2020. Our 5G network will then be gradually rolled out to cover our entire mobile network over the next few years.

5G at the Open-Air Smart Living Lab

5G technology was tested in real-life conditions at the Open-Air Smart Living Lab, which was founded in 2016 by Videotron, in collaboration with the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and the Quartier de l’innovation, among others.

This Centre of Excellence for Next-Generation Evolved Network and Internet of Things is a hub for knowledge, expertise and technology that contribute to the deployment of several technology components, like 5G, that will simplify and improve your daily life.
