Quebecor Inc. CEO Pierre Karl Péladeau says his company is making good on a promise it delivered in spring 2007 to
launch a new cellphone network.

Quebec residents will have another cellphone provider to choose from in 12 to 18 months, when Quebecor Inc. launches a
wireless network to compete with incumbents Bell, Rogers and Telus.

The Montreal-based company announced on Wednesday that it plans to spend between $800 million to $1 billion, which
includes the $554 million it paid to acquire wireless spectrum last summer, over four years to build its network, which
will offer services through its Vidéotron subsidiary.
