[teleclick] Canadian wireless startup, Wind Mobile, has attracted over 100,000 subscribers in its first six months of operations, luring smartphone users away from established rivals Rogers, Bell, and Telus.
“We’re pummeling them,” boasted Wind chairman, Anthony Lacavera, in an interview. “We added subscribers in our coverage area at twice the speed of incumbents in the same time frame.”
Wind offers a number of competitively-priced flat rate voice and data plans major Canadian cities, including Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver. The company is currently offering a $150 account credit to Rogers, Bell, and Telus customers who make the switch.
Wind’s goal is to expand into additional markets and attract 1.5 million customers in its first three years, according to Lacavera.
