Mountain Cablevision receives prestigious communication & technology award

    HAMILTON, ON, March 29 /CNW/ - Mountain Cablevision has just been awarded
the Outstanding Business Achievement Award in the Communications Technology
category by the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. This extremely prestigious
accolade is a testament to Mountain Cablevision's long history of innovation
in the cable telecommunications industry.
    Mountain Cablevision offers world-class communication and entertainment
services to its customers including digital cable television, HDTV, High Speed
Internet and an innovative telephone service, launched only two years ago. The
company has been tapped for a bevy of accolades, including four consecutive
Reader's Choice awards for its Internet service from readers of the Hamilton
Spectator, a Cable-Tec award as a top-tier North American cable system and now
the 2006 Hamilton Chamber of Commerce Communication Technology award.
    "Mountain Cablevision is absolutely delighted to be named the 2006
Communication Technology Company of the year. We work hard to deliver quality
services to our customers so it is an honour to get that acknowledgement,"
said John Piercy, President, Mountain Cablevision. "We're also thrilled with
the response to our local telephone service. Almost half of our customers have
taken the service so far and we're elated with the reaction. Customers
understand that they can save hundreds of dollars per year on their phone
service and get a technologically advanced primary line service that works
essentially the same way as a traditional phone service," adds Piercy.

leading technologies - it was the first cable company in Canada, and among the
first in North America, to offer its cable channel line-up in a 100% digital

delivery network. Mountain operates a state-of-the-art, two-way fibre optic
