EastLink invests $1 million to expand telephone service to East Hants



    MILFORD, NS, March 11 /CNW/ - EastLink will be investing more than
$1 million to upgrade its communication network in the East Hants area. When
completed, these upgrades will allow EastLink to offer EastLink Telephone and
to expand EastLink's digital cable offering to include new services like Video
OnDemand. The network construction is expected to reach completion in Spring
2008.
    "EastLink is continually investing in technology to provide the best
telecommunications and entertainment services to our customers," said Ian
Lezama, Director of Marketing at EastLink, "The expansion to the East Hants
area will give residents a choice in telecommunications service providers and
the opportunity to bundle the fastest internet service and best television
service in a Watch, Surf and Talk bundle for one low price."
    From Enfield to Stewiacke, Nine Mile River to Antrim, and places in
between, construction will begin in March that will enable residents to
subscribe to EastLink Telephone service, which is only $20 per month, and have
access to EastLink's flexible long distance calling plans. Customers choosing
to switch can enjoy free installation and are able to keep their existing
phone number, jacks and directory listing. Customers can also bundle their
cable, high speed and telephone service into EastLink's popular Watch, Surf
and Talk Bundle for one low monthly price.
    In Summer 2008, EastLink will add EastLink OnDemand. With access to
hundreds of movies and series, OnDemand offers convenient features like pause,
fast forward and rewind similar to a DVD player.
