Shaw Communications is launching a next generation wireless service, which will provide its customers with a quadruple-play offering. Shaw recently announced it will spend approximately $100 million during 2010 and anticipates a wireless launch in late 2011.
“Next generation wireless encompasses much more than just cell-phones,” said Peter Bissonnette, president, Shaw Communications, in a statement. “We’re approaching wireless in an innovative, leading-edge way that will allow for a variety of exciting new mobile opportunities in- and out-of-home for our customers.”
Starting immediately, Shaw will focus on hiring wireless professionals in its engineering and IT departments, giving them the opportunity to build new products and services.
