CityWest connects 10,000th Internet customer

CityWest had reason to celebrate last week as the company hooked up its 10,000th Internet customer.

"We've been a telecommunications company for the last 104 years, and we're proud of all our achievements during that time," said Don Holkestad, CEO of CityWest.

"Even with the lightning-fast pace of change in the industry, we've been able to stay on top of emerging trends and provide our customers with great products and services."

The 10,000th customer has been almost 10 years in the making and comes following significant investments to improve the service. Since 2005, Holkestad notes the company has invested $15 million in upgrades to its network, including $3 million in the last two years.

While the milestone was significant, CityWest is already looking ahead to more service upgrades.

"In the next few months, we'll be making some exciting announcements about some new projects that will bring our customers even more innovative products," said Holkestad.

"We're also looking forward to meeting our 20,000th Internet customer in the years to come."
