Weeks after the official announcement, Westman Communications Group (Westman) has already started planning and construction activities in preparation to launch their High-Speed Internet, Digital HD TV and Phone services in Onanole by the end of 2021.
Westman has outlined the service area which they are able to bring services to and have published it for residents and businesses to reference. If your home or business falls within the map boundaries, Westman will be connecting fibre to your premises and you are eligible to receive Westman’s services, which includes internet packages with speeds up to 1 gigabit.
In addition, Westman will be hosting two open houses in Onanole that will give residents the opportunity to learn more about Westman and the services they have to offer.
Open House Dates:
Friday, August 27 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday, August 28 from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Both open houses will be located at:
Onanole & District Recreation Centre
389 Central Road, Onanole MB
Additional open houses may be announced at a later date.
“The ability to bring leading-edge fibre-optic technology to Onanole creates
opportunities for families to stay connected and entertained as well as benefit from remote learning,” said Chief Customer Officer, John Quail. “You will be seeing our team in the area completing preliminary work and they may be in contact with you to start planning the required property construction as well. They will provide you with as much information as possible, and if you have any additional questions, feel free to
give us a call.”
Westman will also be expanding their services to under-served areas in Sandy Lake. While Westman currently offers their services in Sandy Lake, there is an area on the south-east side of the lake that has not been built to that they will serve as part of their Universal Broadband Funding (UBF) project. Sandy Lake residents are invited to attend the Onanole open houses as well for more information.
