Pagers

Communicating when it really counts

And yes, it still exists! For some it’s a pager, for others it’s a beeper; one thing is certain, the pager follows you everywhere, at all times, and remains constantly available to receive messages. It also covers a larger area than cellphones, is faster for reaching several team members at the same time during emergencies and allows for better penetration within buildings.

Stay in touch with your family, colleagues, or clients and have the freedom to move around with peace of mind and the certainty of being reachable at all times. A reliable, discreet, and cost-effective way to stay in touch, no matter where you are.

With Télécommunications de l’Est, you will enjoy coverage including the Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie and Côte-Nord regions.
