Vancouver: Now With More WIND

16 December 2015

WIND Mobile has announced major upgrades to its network in the Greater Vancouver area. Work is already underway, and is expected to be completed by the end of January 2016.

No mention was made in relation to WIND's 4G LTE network media release from earlier this week; it is unlikely that the two have anything to do with one-another. The current VC network overhaul is probably limited to WIND's current reliance on HSPA+ technology. Even so, the carrier claims that "WIND customers in the Greater Vancouver area are already noticing better performance as we upgrade every aspect of our network components."

Since its inception six years ago, WIND has grown rapidly as a carrier, and as a network, thanks in no small part to its affordably-priced plans. It is currently the fourth largest in Canada, choosing to focus on providing coverage in select regions, while slowly expanding itself one day cover the entire nation (if all goes to plan).

These current network updates are a good reminder of the continual work WIND is putting in to increase its coverage area and quality, but the real money will be on how well, and how quickly, it can implement that upcoming 4G LTE network.
