Yes. You can use Internet on your tablet on the Videotron partner network in Canada and the US. Call Customer Service to activate it. You’ll be charged for your data usage. Note, however, that roaming charges apply when you use the Internet outside the Videotron network. Abroad, you can use a Wi-Fi connection.

If you’re using your tablet to access the Internet outside of the area covered by the Videotron network, it is possible that the speed is slower due to the lack of availability of the Videotron mobile network connection on our partner network.

However, if you are within the Videotron network’s coverage area and your connection is unusually slow, contact Videotron’s Technical Support
