AXIA ANNOUNCES FIBRE OPTIC EXPANSION TO RAYMOND & MAGRATH, ALBERTA
Axia’s expansion initiative continues across Alberta with the announcement of their 7th and 8th fibre optic communities, Raymond and Magrath
Calgary, AB – By advocating to get 30% of homes and local businesses to express their interest on Axia’s website, both communities are to become the next rural towns to receive fibre optic infrastructure from Axia. This announcement means unprecedented speed and reliability to homes and businesses in Raymond and Magrath. Axia’s fibre network is made available on an open access basis, meaning long term competition and sustainability for each as their digital economy continues its unprecedented growth.
Operated from its head office in Calgary, Axia is dedicated to introducing competitively priced, state-of-the-art fibre optic Internet services to rural Alberta. This future-proof technology means residents will have robust network capacity and speed, eliminating online delays while offering symmetrical upload and download speeds. It also means reliable availability of VMedia IPTV, Ooma Voice over IP and numerous other cloud based services offering feature rich options for markedly less money than existing legacy offerings.
“We’re thrilled to bring world class Internet to Raymond and Magrath for the same or less money than residents pay today, offering transformational customer value” says Robert Price, Vice President of Enterprise and Residential Service. “Progressive towns like these two across Alberta have shown strong motivation to differentiate their community, augment their economic landscape, and attract the next generation.”
“The Town of Magrath is excited about Axia’s decision to bring world-class fibre optic technology to our growing community,” says Wade Alston, Chief Administrative Office in Magrath. Magrath is a learning-oriented community with a history of innovation and this service will be a boon to our residents and businesses for generations to come.”
"Looking towards the future has never been more important than now,” says Greg Robinson, Councillor for the Town of Raymond. “Raymond is excited to have Axia invest in a dedicated symmetrical fibre optic network that not only meets today’s family and business needs but is also ready for a fast paced and ever evolving future. This opportunity means Raymond can compete in a growing digital economy that contributes to job growth and opens doors to superior quality of life."
Axia sells services over fibre optic infrastructure in jurisdictions that have implemented the Axia Next Generation Network Solution. Axia currently offers service in Vulcan, Nanton, Barnwell and Nobleford and is constructing in Stirling and Pincher Creek, Alberta.
Axia is currently evaluating other communities across Alberta who have demonstrated interest in the service. Any community who reaches 30% expressions of interest will be evaluated for fibre expansion. Interested individuals can fill out the form at www.axia.com/alberta.
