Wind mobile is expanding its coverage across Canada, and will now cover over 1.5 million square kilometers coast-to-coast. The wireless company has added a new domestic roaming network to their coverage, saying that they are now reaching 99% of Canada’s population.

Under the terms of the deal, WIND Mobile received new spectrum previously held by Mobilicity and Shaw Communications, at least doubling WIND's network capacity in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northern & Eastern Ontario.

“Adding a third major roaming partner... give(s) more freedom to our customers to use their phone while traveling across Canada," said WIND Mobile CEO Alek Krstajic. "This new spectrum acquisition means WIND Mobile now has a 20 megahertz AWS-1 corridor from Victoria to Ottawa. This will significantly improve our network performance from Ontario to the Pacific, enabling us to deploy new technology and accelerate the development of our LTE network and other services."

The new acquisition adds an additional 292, 000 square kilometers of Wind coverage within Canada, and follows the company's win of a substantial block of 30 MHz of AWS-3 spectrum in an Industry Canada auction held in March.

So, no need to worry about having the Wind knocked out of your phone anymore. Hopefully.

Wind expressed thanks to Rogers Communications Inc. for its co-operation in the course of the discussions and in particular, CEO Guy Laurence and CFO Anthony Staffieri.

Access to the expanded partner network is now available to all Wind customers, allowing users to use data, talk and text like never before.
