Facts and Numbers
Results that speak volumes
In 2005, Videotron reached new heights by registering sales figures surpassing the billion-dollar mark (CAD). In 2006, the company added almost a quarter of that amount to its results and recorded the strongest growth rate among large cable broadcasting companies in Canada for its range of services.
These figures show the popularity of multiproduct packages - including a majority of people who subscribe to two or more products - the strong Internet service penetration, and continuing customer migration from analog to digital television.
A large clientele
As of June 30, 2012, Videotron was serving 1,837,900 cable television customers, including 1,425,000 subscribers to its digital service. Videotron is also the Québec leader in high-speed Internet access, with 1,341,100 subscribers to its cable service as of June 30, 2012. As of the same date, Videotron had 347,600 subscriber connections to its mobile telephone service and was providing cable telephone service to 1,223,400 Québec households and organizations. For the seventh consecutive year, Videotron was named Québec's most respected telecommunications company by Les Affaires magazine, based on a Léger Marketing survey.
A strong, extended network
If Videotron has such an enviable reputation, built over the past years, it is due to the cable broadcasting network which the company constantly modernizes by injecting millions of dollars annually. The organization invested some $330 million in 2007 and a little over $1 billion since 2003. Videotron's coaxial cable and fibre-optic cable network is state-of-the-art.
Videotron also has one of the largest two-way interconnected HFC (hybrid fibre optic/coaxial cable) networks in North America. It reaches more than 56,000 km, the equivalent of two round trips from Montreal to New Delhi, with 36,700 km of coaxial cable and 19,300 km of fibre-optic cable.
