Montreal's STM Metro Yellow Line Now Has Full Cellphone Service

Just in time for all the summer festivities.
Montreal's STM Metro Yellow Line Now Has Full Cellphone Service

Say what you want about the STM, but you can't say they're not trying. In an attempt to make our commute at least a little less boring, the Montreal's transport society have been slowly but methodically rolling out wireless service on its metro lines.

We were thrilled back in November when we could finally stalk our Facebook feeds and Youtube our favourite kitten compilations without interruption on the Green line, and now we are overjoyed to announce that metro users will now have access to leading-edge 3G, 4G and 4G LTE technology when travelling on the Yellow line. Yep, you can stop being forced to stare at strangers between Berri-UQÀM and Longueuil stations, and get back to staring at your phone.

This is actually the longest stretch of tunnel STM's wireless network partners (Bell, Rogers, TELUS and Videotron) are lighting up, with a full 2,362 metres of mobile connectivity. Never miss another call, text message, or streaming video while you're traveling back and forth to Parc Jean-Drapeau this summer.

The 10 Companies In Quebec Subject To The Most Complaints In 2021

Retail stores and telecom companies topped the list.

Retail stores and telecom companies were unsurprisingly among those that were subject to the most consumer complaints in Quebec in the past year. But they still only represent a small fraction of the complaints sent to the province's consumer watchdog, the Office de la protection du consommateur (OPC).

According to information the OPC shared with MTL Blog, the office received a total of 21,442 complaints between December 1, 2020, and November 30, 2021.
