Join Henry Tambour on a tour of K’atl’odeeche First Nation‘s new fibre optic network.

Henry is the band’s network technician. He and his colleagues are now installing a fibre optic network in the community. This locally owned and operated network will replace copper infrastructure that has been in place since the early 1980s.

The new network will supply much faster and more reliable Internet connectivity to community homes, businesses and services. It is funded by an investment of $275,000 over two years from CanNor.

Local students and community members are documenting this project. Here are some of their photos :
