Thanks for showing interest in the Park West Fiber Optics Co-operative Municipal Fiber project.
This project is a ground breaking (pun intended), unique project sponsored by a Park West Fiber Optics Co-op, (PWFOC), which is made up of three municipalities, (Yellowhead, Hamiota, and Prairie View) plus the Park West School Division. The goal of the Co-op is to bring fibre optics communication benefits to their communities and to connect all of the schools in the Park West School Division with a fibre optic backbone. This partnership between the municipalities and the school division is unique, and is the first of its kind. Partnerships of this nature will allow rural communities to receive broadband that will equal and exceed that in the city, and be offered at a better price for municipalities.
The project will have Points of Presence in every school in the Park West School Division. This means every town containing a Park West School Division school, and the areas around and between these towns will have the opportunity to connect to this very fast and very economical network. The project is slated to be completed in June 2017.
Fibre offers virtually unlimited speed and capacity supporting connectivity for things like Internet browsing, email, file downloads, video streaming (like Netflix), data storage like Google drive, One Drive, Dropbox and almost any other online activity.
