NOVEMBER 5, 2018, Winnipeg, MB – Xplore Mobile today unveiled the Rollover, a first for Manitoba, introducing fairness to the province’s wireless industry. Xplore Mobile will start welcoming new customers on November 14, 2018 and this innovative plan will allow them to roll over their last month’s unused data. 

“Manitobans have been asking for a wireless company that treats them fairly and offers plans that are simple, affordable and transparent. We want to be that company,” said Allison Lenehan, President of Xplore Mobile. 

Xplore Mobile recently launched its service by welcoming approximately 20,000 mobile customers transferred from another carrier, as a result of the agreement with the Competition Bureau of Canada in February 2017. 

This chosen group of customers will be transitioned in phases onto a new, state-of-the-art, industry leading mobile network. As part of the phased migration, these 20,000 customers will be the first in the province to have the opportunity to choose to roll over one month’s unused data allowance to the next month, with no strings attached. 

Change, even when it’s for the better, can be stressful, which is why the transition has been deliberately designed to optimize the experience for each customer. Three Xplore Mobile retail locations in Winnipeg and Brandon are now open, with three more opening this week, allowing Manitobans to learn more about the Rollover and Xplore Mobile’s plans and offerings. Customers who have received a welcome letter from Xplore Mobile can expect their account and service to transition, based on their schedule. Xplore Mobile will have a focus on transition with appointments and extra staffing between November 2018 and March 2019.
