The TELUS Wi-Xi squad will hit the streets of Montreal starting today. The squad will visit various popular public places throughout the summer to give Montrealers free access to TELUS’s powerful 4G LTE network.
The BIXI bike, decked out in TELUS colours, is transformed into a Wi-Fi access point thanks to the TELUS Wi-Xi, a 4G LTE modem which is linked to a battery that is recharged by pedal power.
A TELUS innovation, the TELUS Wi-Xi allows up to 10 users per bike to connect to TELUS’s powerful 4G LTE network. Here is the WiXi squad’s schedule for July:
