Aliant Telecom completes broadband network expansion
Canada’s incumbent telco for Atlantic Canada, Aliant Telecom, has completed a major broadband network expansion, which has seen high-speed Internet connectivity now available to nearly three-quarters of homes in the region, up from the 39% level recorded in 1999. "With our $26-million investment, more of our friends, family, neighbours and entrepreneurs can use broadband to explore business opportunities, connect with others learn and expand their horizons – all on a dedicated unshared access from your computer to Aliant’s network, which provides consistent speed and doesn’t tie up your phone line," Aliant VP broadband and marketing Heather Tulk said in a news release.
