In October 2018, Télécommunications de l’Est joined the Iristel group with the goal of offering new telecommunications services in the Côte-Nord, Gaspésie, and Bas-Saint-Laurent regions. Since then, our Télécommunications de l’Est and Iristel teams have been working to build our own cellular network. We look forward to serving this market.
Some customers are already benefiting from our service. New customers will be added progressively as we roll out our own cellular network in each of these territories.
