Quebec-based quadruple-play cableco Videotron has announced that it will begin offering consumers and business customers broadband packages with speeds of 940Mbps (download)/50Mbps (upload) on 13 July 2016 under the ‘Hybrid Fibre Giga’ banner, beginning in Laval and continuing across Quebec in the following months.
