On July 24, the Village of Pemberton announced that “blazing fast” internet speeds and “enough bandwidth for generations to come” will be coming to Pemberton, by 2019, thanks to a $5 million infrastructure investment by TELUS into fibre optic.
This investment is part of TELUS’ commitment to invest $4.7 billion throughout British Columbia between 2017 and 2020, at no cost to taxpayers. A direct connection to the PureFibre network comes at no cost to residents, nor is there any obligation to purchase TELUS services once connected.
A collective of local property developers contributed funds to allow the Village to connect more than 90% of homes and businesses in Pemberton directly to the gigabit-enabled TELUS PureFibre network. All new developments in the Village of Pemberton will ideally be hooked in to the TELUS system by the end of the year, with the remaining homes and businesses by the end of 2019, according to the Pique.

Questions to TELUS about what this means for Mount Currie and Squamish-Lillooet Regional District residents have not yet been answered.
