Axia’s expansion initiative continues across Alberta with the announcement of its latest fibre optic community, Barnwell

Calgary, AB – By advocating to get 30% of homes and local businesses to express their interest on Axia’s website, Barnwell has secured their community as the next rural municipality to receive fibre optic infrastructure from Axia. Starting immediately, Axia will begin construction on a next generation fibre optic network in Barnwell, Alberta, bringing unprecedented speed and reliability to homes and businesses within the community. Axia’s fibre is made available on an open access basis, meaning long term competition and sustainability for Barnwell as the digital economy continues its unprecedented growth.

Operated from their head office in Calgary, Axia is dedicated to introducing competitively priced, state-of-the-art fibre optic Internet services to rural Alberta. This future-proof technology means residents will never have to install another Internet line, eliminating online delays while offering symmetrical upload and download speeds.

“We’re dedicated to providing the best Internet experience to our customers, for the same or less money than they pay today” says Robert Price, Vice President of Enterprise and Residential Service. “Progressive towns like Barnwell across Alberta are swelling with excitement at the prospect of changing their economic landscape and attracting the next generation.”

“We’re thrilled for Axia to come to Barnwell,” says Wendy Bateman, Chief Administrative Officer of Barnwell. “Our residents have demonstrated significant interest in the service and we are excited to have access to the latest technology in Internet connectivity available today.”

Axia is currently evaluating other communities across Alberta who have demonstrated interest in the service. Any community who reaches 30% expressions of interest will be evaluated for fibre expansion. Interested individuals can fill out the form at <a href=""></a>.
