CityWest to Launch Services in Northern BC with help of Federal Government

Posted: July 13, 2017

CityWest is proud to announce a partnership with the federal government to provide approximately 520 households and businesses in Gossen, Kleanza, Usk, Jackpine Flats, Glen Vowell, Kitwanga, and the outskirts of Houston with improved Internet, Television, and phone services.

CityWest will invest over $1.5 million towards the projects along with a $1.7 million investment from the federal government. 

“Much of the work for this expansion has already started, and we’re grateful to the federal government to help us bring great Internet, TV, and phone services to other communities in the North,” said Donovan Dias, VP, Sales & Project Management at CityWest. “We’re hoping to have the work completed by mid-2018.”

With this government funding, CityWest will be able to leverage its existing investment in expanding its fibre network throughout the North, which it funded through its operational revenue.

“It’s very expensive to build communications infrastructure in the North, due to the distances between communities, as well as the challenging terrain,” said Dias. “However, we believe residents of the North should have access to the latest and greatest services as their compatriots in the southern parts of the province.

“With the help of this funding, we’re able to introduce more residents and businesses to a great customer experience with CityWest.”

Customers in these new communities will have access to the same products and services that other CityWest customers already have access to.

The first customers will be installed in the next few months, and all 520 dwellings will have services installed by the end of 2018.

We've been a CityWest customer for over 25 years, and there are a lot of reasons why we've stayed with them so long. Not only does CityWest have a range of great products, but they're also deeply invested in the North by employing local people and sponsoring non-profit organizations. We're proud to support a company that supports our communities so well, and we're looking forward to another 25 years.
