Distributel has announced an extensive expansion to its high speed internet network in La Belle Province. The service will now be available in an additional 29 cities across Quebec, including Rimouski, Tros-Rivieres, Drummondville and Shawinigan.

"Distributel has aggressive plans to expand our cable footprint throughout Canada, and we're starting in Quebec," says Matt Stein, CEO of Distributel. "For more than 25 years, Quebecers have relied on Distributel to introduce new competitive solutions in the telecommunications market, and today we are doing it again. Many of the cities where we're introducing our service have historically had only one Internet provider. Distributel offers competitive high-speed Internet and phone services, and we're proud to take a leadership role in bringing an alternative Internet solution to even more cities in Quebec."

The company’s high speed internet offering are reasonably priced, with rates for unlimited usage running between $49.95 to $89.95, depending on download speed. In some areas, high speed internet can be bundled with TV, phone and long distance service for further discounts.
