Grande Prairie says "Hello" to EastLink Telephone

GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, Feb. 2 /CNW/ - EastLink is bringing choice in local telephone service to residents in the Grande Prairie area after investing millions to upgrade its systems to a state of the art digital network.

      benefit from customized Calling Features, and choose from flexible Long
      Distance calling plans;
    - High Speed Internet Extreme 15, incredibly fast 15 Mbps High Speed
      Internet service; and
    - Digital TV, including entertainment on up to four TVs with access to

      Specialty Channels and Theme Packages.

Communities benefitting from this upgrade include Grande Prairie and surrounding area.
