In line with the New Resident Campaign that’s striving to give more lifestyle options to new residents, a new fibre optic network allows for not only more telecommuting but faster and more stable internet connection for old and new residents alike.

Local artist Brad Collins has been involved in the gaming industry since 2003 and knows the issues first hand regarding connectivity

Coastfm news caught up with Collins……

Collins displays his art on the international market via the internet and he is looking forward to the fibre optic network that is on it’s way to Powell River.

Collins told coastfm news how connectivity effects his livelyhood…..

Powell River is at the forefront of the Telus fibre optic installation in BC.
The concept of having the same quality of access to the internet as any area in the continent has many locals looking at their international options from their Powell River palaces.

Telus intends to have the first fibre optic subscriber area all systems go in early April with completion of installation by August.
