TELUS is providing millions in investments in Sechelt, Gibsons and Pender Harbour
to connect more than 90 per cent of homes and businesses in the area directly to fibre optic cables.
This significant investment from TELUS comes at no cost to any of the municipalities or its residents, and will radically increase Internet speeds and provide access to TELUS’ Optik TV.
“This investment to connect homes and businesses directly to fibre optic cables will dramatically enhance the Internet speeds available to homes and businesses,” said Lisa LaMothe, TELUS general manager for the Sunshine Coast. “Most critically, this investment will allow local businesses to operate locally while competing globally, and organizations will have endless opportunities to innovate how they deliver services such as health care and education well into the future.”
TELUS crews have been on the Sunshine Coast working during the past number of months connecting with interested home and business owners and have started installing new fibre optic cables to replace existing copper lines. TELUS anticipates completing the build soon, meaning businesses and residents will begin to take advantage of this technology in the coming months.
