VMedia Telecom Inc.[1] is a Canadian telecommunications company and broadcast distribution provider. It offers VoIP telephone services across Canada; DSL and cable Internet in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia; and IPTV television service in Ontario, the Greater Montreal Area, Alberta and British Columbia.[2][3][4]

History[edit]

VMedia officially launched on March 26, 2013. Following the launch of its IPTV television service in Ontario, the company announced in 2016 that its intention is to expand service to Quebec,[5] Alberta and British Columbia in the future.[6] On May 31, 2016, VMedia formally launched IPTV service in parts of Quebec, and British Columbia and Alberta on June, 22, 2016.[7][8]

Services[edit]

Television[edit]

VMedia's IPTV service is a traditional subscription television service bundled with over-the-top content delivered through a proprietary Android-based set-top box branded as "VBox".[9] Subscription to the television service requires a VMedia internet plan.

On September 16, 2016, VMedia announced TV service is now accessible through Roku TV and streaming devices, providing access to up to 20 Canadian and US networks, without requiring a VMedia internet subscription.[10][11]

Internet[edit]

VMedia provides DSL and cable Internet services as a competitive local exchange carrier by purchasing wholesale bandwidth from major network providers including Bell, Rogers, Cogeco, Vidéotron and Shaw Communications.[12]

Telephone[edit]

VMedia offers VoIP telephone service in two tiers: unlimited Canadian long distance or unlimited "World" long distance (to 60 countries).[13]
