Telus has committed to investing $400,000 in Stettler this year to expand and enhance broadband Internet service for area residents and businesses, the company announced last week.

“Telus’ $400,000 investment means people and businesses right here in Stettler will have more access to Internet services,” said Fred Weinheimer of Telus. “The demand for advanced communications services is growing in Stettler, and TELUS is committed to bringing the latest technology to the community. Our simple philosophy, We Give Where We Live, has encouraged our Telus family … to contribute $25,000 and 11,000 volunteer hours to charitable and community organizations in Stettler, including Heartland Victim Services Unit Society and Stettler Town and Country Museum, since 2000.”
