New fibre optic network will enhance social and economic opportunity for Nanton, Alberta.

Nanton, AB – Following Vulcan, AB, Axia announces the next rural community to be outfitted with Axia fibre optic Internet. Starting immediately, Axia will begin construction on a new, fast and reliable fibre optic network in Nanton, Alberta, bringing unprecedented Internet speed to homes and businesses within the community.

Following the recent fibre optic announcements in Edmonton, Alberta, Axia remains dedicated to introducing competitively priced, state-of-the-art services to rural Alberta. “If traditional copper wire isn’t good enough for major city centers like Edmonton, why is it good enough for rural communities like Nanton”, says Robert Price, Vice President of Residential and Enterprise services at Axia. “This fall we will begin connecting high speed fibre Internet to residential and businesses in Nanton, followed by more rural communities across Alberta.”

Axia operates what it believes to be the most comprehensive, high quality and resilient fibre network interconnecting communities in the province. Existing and future customers will benefit from Axia’s ability to deliver the highest quality, scalable, flexible and attractively priced fibre-based services. 

“We’re really excited for Axia to come to Nanton,” says Kevin Miller, Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Nanton. “As a rural community, having access to the latest technology in Internet connectivity will be an important economic driver for business development in Town, and be yet another great reason for people to choose Nanton as their home.” Miller adds, “Forget 15Mbps when you can get 100Mbps!”

Followed by Nanton, Axia will continue to expand across Alberta. “We are looking to invest in the most forward-looking fibre friendly communities to bring our ultimate fibre optic Internet services to. By encouraging 30% of each community to submit pre-orders for residential and small business Internet services – your community could be next,” says Price.

Pre-orders can be submitted online at
