Montréal, January 21, 2011 — Subscribers to Videotron’s Internet access service can enjoy Wi-Fi technology that ranks among the best available on the market today with the introduction of a new Videotron-exclusive wireless router.

The DIR-825/VTR Wi-Fi router, developed in partnership with D-Link specifically for Videotron’s Internet access network, is available as of today. An attractive feature for Videotron customers is that the device is fully backed by Videotron technical support.

“We are very pleased to bring our customers a high-end device and, most importantly, to offer remote support from our customer-focused tech support service,” said Myrianne Collin, Vice President, Marketing, Consumer Division, of Videotron. “This combination offers Videotron customers an exclusive, simple, effective, worry-free home networking solution.”

The D-Link DIR-825/VTR router supports simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band connections, reducing interference and lag. For example, users can check their email and browse the Web while streaming an HD movie and accessing other online multimedia content. The router is also IPv6-ready, which means it can support the new protocol being introduced to accommodate the flood of devices connecting to the Internet. All these features make it the ideal tool for sharing an Internet connection at home.

The D-Link DIR-825/VTR Wi-Fi router retails for $129.95 but Videotron customers can take advantage of a $70 promotional discount with a 12-month economic inducement during the introductory period, which ends on February 23, 2011.
