You have all seen it numerous times on the way to your home in Dunany. That little shed, in front of 1100 Dunany Road, houses the Bell telephone switch. Up until this fall, it was a traditional analog switch. And then somebody in Bell Canada decided to replace it with a modern digital switch.

And that, fellow residents, made wire line High Speed Internet (DSL) accessible to all within five or six kilometers. Just like in the city. And at city prices too. Bell’s Performance package (7Mbits and 60 Gigs of download goes for 40$ a month (installation and router included). And there are probably resellers that can offer the service through Bell’s infrastructure.

What is amazing is that nobody was told this offering was coming to Dunany. The MRC who has an active file on HS Internet did not know about it. Neither did our mayor.

When I heard about it, accidentally, from one of residents (thank you Bruce) I rushed to Bell’s web site and checked the availability for my place, the system said yes. So, some of us who had signed contracts for Bell Turbo Stations (wireless) had to bargain hard with the giant to move to DSL without penalty but we managed.

I suspect that the switch was defective and had to be replaced but I have not been able to verify that. Since this offering is in stealth mode, I have decided to share this good news and will gladly respond to inquiries on the topic.

I want, in your name, to thank especially Robert Percy for the efforts he has personally given to make the kayaking events such a great success on its second year. We want to help the organizers of the different activities to reach more residents and, de facto, create stronger social bonds within the community. The members will meet during the winter and come up with proposals to help improve the general security in our area.
