Town & RM High Speed Internet Announcement

The Town of Carman and the Rural Municipality of Dufferin are pleased to announce they have signed agreements with Valley Fiber to provide dedicated high speed Internet to the area.

Residents within the Town of Carman will be able to receive dedicated fiber to the home in 2020. The service will provide residents and businesses with a minimum of 25 Mbps download and a minimum of 5 Mbps upload at a cost comparable to other competitors. Higher speed packages are also available.

Town of Carman Mayor Brent Owen added, “Our residents have asked for faster, more reliable internet. Fiber technology is the answer, and we are pleased to move this forward to benefit both personal and business sectors”.

Valley Fiber will offer FREE installation with a one month service agreement of their fiber optic infrastructure as they build the network in Carman!

Senior VP of Valley Fiber Conley Kehler is excited to bring Dedicated Fiber to the RM of Dufferin, and Town of Carman. The fiber build is not a typical shared service fiber build but rather a dedicated service to each home and business.  This means GUARANTEED not UP TO speeds.  Kehler adds “that the fiber build is not only about delivering guaranteed speeds to the home and business, but also delivers the opportunity for economic growth in all sectors of business.  The tower in the Carman’s industrial park can service residents in Carman and Dufferin in the next few weeks.  The plan is to connect this tower to fiber in spring.  Our under serviced but innovative communities in southern Manitoba deserve better, and we are here to deliver not only better, but rather best.  This is truly Canada’s first fully dedicated fiber build.”

Rural Municipality of Dufferin residents will be able to access faster Internet through a new tower being installed in the Carman Industrial Park which will be linked to the fiber network. Additionally residents along some fringe areas of Carman and along the installation route will be able to receive direct fiber to the home.

RM of Dufferin Reeve George Gray added “Both councils felt the investment in this project is important to keep the area growing and to allow for better service for its residents and businesses”.

Economic Development Officer Tyler King stated, “Residents and Businesses need access to reliable high speed Internet in order to conduct day to day activities and to grow in a highly competitive online environment. This will allow us to remain and attractive place to live and build a business.”
