TELUS is investing 20 million dollars to connect Nelson homes and businesses to their advanced fibre optic network.

Construction on the TELUS PureFibre network will begin this summer, and should be finished by end of the year. 

TELUS also recently completed construction of two cell towers in Nelson and the Village of Slocan, and upgraded its wireless site in Rossland

According to officials, they've been working closely with communities to make the West Kootenay one of the most connected regions in North America.
