Clinton, B.C., March, 2020 – ABC Communications (www.abccommunications.com), one of British Columbia’s largest privately held internet service providers, recently completed deploying fixed 4G LTE Internet services Clinton BC. The project led by Falko Kadenbach, vice president of ABC Communications, was made possible with the support of the Province of British Columbia and ABC Communications.
The project was started in the summer of 2019 and will be completed in the fall of 2020, providing broadband network improvements to Clinton, BC.
The project criteria set by the provincial government was to supply 50 Mbps services to the community. ABC Communications committed to supply up to 250 Mbps services as part of its project scope. Originally ABC proposed a fibre to the home network. However after completing the due diligence found that the budget was not sufficient to proceed with the original proposal. With an accepted redesign ABC has broken the project into two phases the first having been completed with this announcement launching 50 Mbps and the second phase slated for later this summer which will deliver services up to 250 Mbps.
“This upgrade to LTE systems will be a great benefit to both residents and businesses in Clinton.”, states Mayor Susan Swan. “In today’s economy, connectivity is of vital importance for our businesses to remain competitive. The increased capacity and speeds will allow the option of doing online business, and online education in ways that may have been challenging before this upgrade.”
“Northern Development is pleased to hear that the Village of Clinton is prepped for high-speed internet. While the internet is something that many people take for granted, the Connecting BC program reminds us that many rural and remote areas don’t have high-speed access. This first step will provide increased economic opportunities for the Village of Clinton and many other communities in the near future.” Adds Joel Mckay, CEO Northern Development Initiative Trust.
Kadenbach added, “It is nice to final provide an increase to the services in Clinton. This project has had some hurdles which we collectively had to overcome and push past. The launch of the 50 Mbps services will provide the increase that most Clinton residents had requested in the pre project survey’s we conducted. The second phase to this project will add additional connectivity that will provide the community and most importantly to the business community with 250 Mbps services.”
