Well, the runs from Creston to Wynndel are already in place. I understand the the following has been done:
- A new fibre backbone runs down hwy 3 to Creson (10 miles from us). And, also, apparently this has not yet been "light". I don't know.
- Cable (coax) has been run from Creston back to Wynndel (and beyond?). There are a whole bunch of loops of cable just hanging from poles along the way. I can only assume that shaw wants to connect paying customers to the loops
No idea why shaw couldn't get a decent roi from us. They work in smaller communities, etc.
I don't think the money invested in the wireless plant has any effect either. All it really does, from shaw's viewpoint, is to give them an exclusive since Telus has agreed to not enter this market for at least 3 more years.
Of course, if Telus were here, I'm sure that shaw would have knocked on my door ages ago
