plans to turn off the cellular network on March 1st.
As we outlined on the blog in December, the planned departure from the cellular service market was announced as part of a redirection of corporate energies for CityWest.
With the local communication provider giving customers with a nudge towards Telus, which has set up a kiosk in the CityWest building on Third Avenue West.
That nudge, judging by an advertisement in the weekly paper, has turned into more of a shout from the roof of the Third Avenue building. With CityWest providing an advisory in BIG BLACK type for their soon to be orphaned customer base.
"We strongly recommend you visit the TELUS store as soon as possible to ensure no disruption to your services."
No update has been provided as of yet to the CityWest website, a portal which CityWest doesn't seem to utilize as much as it should in providing information on services to the community.
Their newspaper ad suggests that CityWest customers who may have any questions should contact a CityWest customer service operator at 250-624-2111
