Eastlink puts the customer first with new Wireless service - Big Savings in a Bundle + No Term Contracts, over Canada's first and only 100% 4G LTE network

HALIFAX, Feb. 14, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- Today, Eastlink served up another first introducing its new, customer-focused Wireless service delivered over the first and only 100% 4G LTE network in Canada.

"We are so proud of this new service," says Lee Bragg, CEO of Eastlink.

"Our objective has been to launch a high quality product that provides an exceptional customer experience. Our team has worked tirelessly to deliver on that." With an investment of circa 200 million dollars, Eastlink's new wireless service adds another high value product to its iconic bundle.

"Consumers have been very vocal about what they want in a wireless service," says Matthew MacLellan, Eastlink Wireless President. "We've invested heavily to design a wireless experience that gives our customers what they've told us is most important to them - simple offers, better pricing, no term contracts, and faster, more reliable speeds." Pivotal to Eastlink's new Wireless service is the Eastlink "easyTab", which gives customers a great phone at a great price, without locking them into onerous term contracts like other carriers.

From a network coverage perspective, customers will be able to use their Eastlink wireless device around the world; the company already boasts more 4G LTE wireless sites across its launch footprint than any of its competitors.

When asked what that means for the customer, Mr. MacLellan explains."It means that unlike our competitors' legacy networks, customers in all of our markets, big and small, will experience the same lightning fast speed. So a customer in Amherst for example, will enjoy the same speeds and capabilities as a customer in Halifax." Eastlink is marketing its new Wireless service in Halifax, Nova Scotia first, starting Friday, February 15. Other locations are expected to launch in the weeks ahead.
