Camp in a Box basically allows a work camp to set up phone, high-speed Internet access and other consumer services for the contractors who live on site, as well as enable other important business solutions (IP networks and emergency management services) in areas where wired services aren’t readily available.
Telus has completed more than 20 projects in the oilsands and has another 50 planned over the next 10 to 20 years.
“Because these mines are their own cities within themselves, there are thousands of workers living on site,” said Andy Burgess, marketing manager for Telus. “Camp in a Box provides various services to help them do their business and help miners feel at home.”
Telus allows miners to access high-speed Internet, digital TV, gaming, smartphone services and more. // http://telus.com
