Wind Mobile is planning for a cell tower to be located near a plaza at Dougall and Cabana

Windsorites may soon have a brand new cellphone carrier to choose from.

Wind Mobile, a fairly new Canadian mobile phone provider which launched service to major Canadian municipalities in 2009, has filed for site plan applications with City Hall to build four cell towers in Windsor.

The company, which also runs popular long-distance provider Yak, paid $442-million in 2008 for a portion of the Canadian wireless spectrum.

Wind mobile boasts 400,000+ subscribers and if you have a Wind cellphone right now and use it in Windsor, voice, data and texting is considered roaming. The new cell towers in Windsor will allow for Wind Mobile to have full coverage in the area as part of a network expansion plan announced on May 26th.

Wind Mobile is known for their easy-to-understand, highly competitive, low cost, unlimited voice, texting and data plans.

The four telecommunications towers will be located at 2619 Country Road 42 (749.2 sq.m on the Predawn Nursery site), 1001 Tecumseh Road West (25 sq.m near Tecumseh and Crawford), 4850 North Service Road East (777.2 sq.m near North Service and Pillette) and 3850 Dougall Avenue (291 sq.m behind the plaza at Dougall and Cabana).
