QUESNEL, BC, March, 2018 – ABC Communications (, one of British
Columbia’s largest privately held Internet service providers, recently deployed fixed 4 G LTE Internet

services to Mcleese Lake, which is a small community south of Quesnel. The project led by Falko
Kadenbach, vice president of ABC communications, was made possible with the support of Local
Governments, The Province of British Columbia and Local Community Champions.

“I welcome the latest improvements by ABC Communications for high speed internet in the McLeese
Lake community. High Speed Internet is now a necessity in everyday life and should allow people to
make use of technology like Netflix and Skype, similar to those living in urban areas,” states Steve
Forseth, Cariboo Regional District Electoral Area D Director. “I am excited to see projects like this moving
forward in the Cariboo, particularly in my own electoral area, and adding value to our local businesses.”

Terry Picketts and Diana Picketts, owners of Mcleese Lake Resort, describe the addition of high speed
internet “Having a proper internet service with a viable Wi-Fi system has made a huge difference in our
day to day operations. Our customers get uninterrupted service 24/7 while allowing us to complete all
business transactions via our POS machine without any delays or dropped calls"

The service provides coverage to the immediate businesses and residents surrounding the Lake. “LTE is a
vast improvement to the legacy network in Mcleese Lake,” says Falko Kadenbach, ABC Communications’
Vice President.

Kadenbach adds, “These days’ people want to do so much more streaming on the Internet, these new
services will allow them to watch TV over the internet and so much more.”
