Sundre set to become gigabit community

Construction notices have been issued this week by Xplornet Communications Inc.

SUNDRE — The municipality is poised to emerge from the digital dark age and finally connect to the 21st century.

“The Town of Sundre is happy to inform residents that Xplornet Communications Inc. will be commencing construction within two weeks to deploy a full fibre-to-the-premise fibre optic network,” reads a portion of a press release issued by the town this afternoon (July 20).

The new infrastructure will provide the community with gigabit internet service. That means delivering light-speed digital communications for both residents and businesses, the statement reads.

Although Xplornet Communications Inc. issued construction notices this week, additional project details are yet to come. Specific information on options for signing up to the new service will also be announced in the coming weeks, it said.

“The Town of Sundre is very happy to support XCI in their deployment of this full fibre network in Sundre, and we are excited to continue facilitating yet another important investment into our community.”
