Regional begins switch to digital
News | 12/22/1999 5:00 am EST
Constrained by a lack of bandwidth, Regional Cablesystems Inc has moved quickly to launch digital service in the Timmins and Sudbury areas. Rollout of new digital services will start this February, and company executives are hoping to have the swap-out process finished by next spring. When the rollout is finished, 63,000 subscribers will have access to an all-inclusive package that will include a digital music offering. Regional will use the additional capacity gained by the conversion to digital to add a new tier of programming.
