What You Need to Know About Distributel
Even if you’re not in the business of telecommunications, you may have heard a little whispering about a certain Bell product. Here’s what you need to know:
Bell Quietly Completed Distributel Acquisition in December
Most companies like to make a big splash when they purchase something 500 million dollars. But not Bell. That telecommunications giant chose to be a little more discreet when it acquired Distributel, a Canadian telecommunications retailer, this past December.
Wait, Weren’t They Already Partnered?
Yep—Bell and Distributel have been working together since 2016. This made quite a lot of sense—together, the two companies provided a wide variety of services in Quebec and Ontario.
But now that it’s been a few months since the acquisition was completed, they’re donning their special matching sweaters.
It makes sense that the two companies chose to join forces—now is an interesting time for the telecommunications industry. As more and more Canadians go for unlimited internet and no-contract cell plans, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for companies to stand out from the crowd.
Fortunately, now that Bell and Distributel are one and the same, they’ll have a better chance of achieving those gang-buster results.
What Does This Mean For You?
Well, Bell and Distributel are on course to make life a little easier—and cheaper—for Canadians. Here’s how:
- No more shopping around. You’ll be able to access all your television, telephone, and internet services through one provider.
- Cheaper packages. With one company providing it all, the chances of you finding a better deal will be higher.
- More convenience. With one provider, setting up your services and dealing with customer service issues will be more efficient.
So, next time you drive past a Bell store, you can wave and whisper, “Hey, that’s my provider”.
The Bottom Line
Now that Bell and Distributel have joined forces, you may have more options at your disposal. No matter which services you use, you’ll have one source for all your needs.
Better yet, this could mean cheaper packages and better deals, so you can get your telecommunications fix without breaking the bank.
