- Offers rural Canadians robust connections at up to 10 Mbps
- Deepens TekSavvy's strategic investment in infrastructure gaps
CHATHAM, ON and GATINEAU, QC, Nov. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - TekSavvy Solutions Inc. today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Lightwave Wireless Internet Services, a fixed-wireless broadband company in the Chatham-Kent area.
The Lightwave acquisition strengthens TekSavvy's ability to provide high-speed Internet to rural residents in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. TekSavvy's engineering and technical teams have now completed their review and upgrade of the Lightwave network, which has been integrated into TekSavvy's SkyFi network to expand TekSavvy's wireless broadband footprint in the area. The integration process involved improvements to the Lightwave infrastructure, which now features persistent uptime and speeds of up to 10Mbps.
"We are very excited about the Lightwave acquisition." said Pascal Tellier, TekSavvy's Chief Information Officer. "Coming on the heels of the Hastings Cable Vision and ROOT Data Center deals, this is another network facilities investment that makes sense. It expands our ability to bring robust broadband, and our renowned customer support, to rural consumers in Chatham-Kent."
Lightwave's assets have been integrated into the TekSavvy portfolio of products, and will be amalgamated into the SkyFi service line.
