Quebecor calls for the intervention of Prime Minister François Legault in the dispute between it and Bell over Videotron’s access to its poles.
The Government of Quebec wants to speed up the connection of thousands of homes in regions to high speed internet. But to achieve this, Videotron must have access to infrastructure, Bell poles, for example.
However, Videotron has been complaining for some time about the reluctance of its competitor Bell and the delays.
Quebecor’s dissatisfaction was once again expressed by President and CEO Pierre Karl Péladeau during a conference with analysts on Thursday.
And Friday, Videotron was still impatient, saying that it is “urgent that the government of Quebec take the necessary measures to bring Bell to order”.
Bell is due to make its comments known later today.
