TELUS is investing $400,000 in Castlegar this year to enhance its wireless and wired broadband Internet coverage for area residents and businesses.

“TELUS’ $400,000 investment means people and businesses right here in Castlegar will have more access to the Internet and enhanced wireless services,” said Steve Jenkins, TELUS general manager for the Southern Interior. “The demand for advanced communications services is exploding in Castlegar, and TELUS is committed to bringing the latest technology, both wired and wireless, to the community.”

This significant investment is part of a $3 billion, three-year commitment to invest in B.C. made last year and builds upon the $29 billion TELUS has already invested in operations and technology throughout the province since 2000.
