|A new partnership for CityWest, this time with the Tahltan Nation|
will see fibre optic communications come to communities
in the Tahtlan territory
A State of the art fibre optic network will soon be in place on Tahitian Territory, providing for improved internet access and offer access to a range of services from health care to business development for residents of the region.
The network is the latest venture for Prince Rupert based CityWest, which has struck a partnership with Tahtlan Communications to construct the high speed fibre optic service in the territory.
The project is through funding as part of both Federal and Provincial programs, that funding was announced close to two years ago in July of 2019.
Over the last year and half, CityWest and Tahltan officials have been working out the plan to deliver the services, with Stefan Woloszyn, the CEO of CityWEst outlining that process today.“We have been working with the Tahltan nation for the last year and a half, as we have planned and built out our partnership network and submitted plans to develop connectivity to all of their communities and strategic partners.
The anticipation of the project for the Tahltan's was outlined by Paul Gruner, the CEO for the Tahtlan Nation Development Corporation.
