    Videotron ad

    Very cute Videotron ad that completely shamelessly takes jabs at Bell, Fido and Telus.

    Videotron Mobile ad - Unlimited Data: http://youtu.be/Rzhm7YhrggA

    I saw the French version on TV and then looked it up.

    Can you describe roughly what exactly was in that ad? I am very surprised as VT is a media buddy buddy with Rogers and Bell. Why would VT attempt to tease RBT?
    VT's situation is very interesting indeed.
    1. Will it deploy its newly acquired spectrum (outside Quebec) and proceed with installation?
    2. I doubt (1) is to happen as it takes enormous financial resource and frontal competion with Wind and Mobilicity.
    3. Will it piggy back on Rogers' network like what it does in Quebec where VT has signed off a 10 years joint deployment of LTE? Basically VT does not need to lay cable or erect towers. It just shares the spectrum and existing towers with Rogers which will have been using the new entrant's spectrum without actually buying it. It will have been a brilliant circumvention of the government auction rule where set aside spectrum was auctioned at a lower rate specifically for the newbies.

    It just made fun of the big 3.

    Blue call center, operator was saying "Let me look if there is any promos", taps on keyboard, smiles and goes back to typing.

    That is all I can remember. I think they also had animals falling off (jab at Telus) and can't remember what they did for Robbers.

    The customer asks about unlimited data. The Bell esque rep hems and haws, unsure if that even exists. Then it cuts to a shot of a dog resembling a Fido ad, with a voice over "Unlimited?". Then you see Telus style purple text on a white screen, with a little frog, ribbit, ribbit, it falls off. Then back to the Bell lady who still can't find the unlimited plan.
