MetTel enhances its presence in Canada, brings service to four regions

MetTel, an emerging competitive provider, is taking on the Canadian market, announcing that it has expanded its coverage into four regions.

The service provider has expanded its coverage to include Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island provinces. In addition, it plans to add the Saskatchewan province over the next 90 days.

Focused on serving businesses located in the remote areas of the country, MetTel is adding advanced voice and data services, including broadband, to its list of products for Canadian customers.

"Our North American expansion now makes it possible for companies in the central and eastern maritime provinces of Canada to benefit from the convenience of using one provider with a single point-of-contact across the country, as well a standardized customer care structure regardless of their geography," said Sam Vogel, executive vice president of regulatory affairs at MetTel, in a release.   

Canada is just one of several areas where MetTel is expanding its service presence. In 2012, the service provider began offering service in Puerto Rico.
