Telus reveals Revelstoke fibre-optic network rollout plan

Telus posts map illustrating rollout schedule for Revelstoke fibre optic network.

Telus has unveiled the rollout schedule for the planned fibre-optic network in Revelstoke.

The company has posted a map on its Revelstoke microsite illustrating the months different areas of town will receive fibre-optic connections.

The western half of the downtown core, from Connaught Avenue to the Trans-Canada Highway will be the first area to be hooked up in August.

The rest of central Revelstoke, CPR Hill and Columbia Park will be connected in September. Southside, parts of Arrow Heights, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and the South Revelstoke area will be connected in October.

The rest of Arrow Heights, the Big Eddy and Mount Begbie Road area will be connected in November.

Of note is that it appears fibre will be extended to all properties along Mount Begbie Road and south of town to the end of Airport Way.

Properties north of town won’t be so lucky — the network map does not include Westside Road, Glacier House Resort and the Revelstoke Dam.

You can find out more about Telus’ plans in our story from last month.
