Telecommunications giant TELUS is investing $5 million to connect Pemberton homes and businesses directly to it’s advanced fibre optic network. the Village of Pemberton and the local development community are also investing $250,000 to help make the upgrades a reality.

The connection will dramatically boost data capacity, providing local homes and businesses access to the gigabit-enabled TELUS PureFibre network.

In a press release the Village of Pemberton says more than 90% of homes and businesses will be connected to the high speed network, and should be online by the end of 2019.
