FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Eastlink invests $6 million towards construction of new
Summerside communication network

Summerside, Prince Edward Island - Eastlink announced today it is investing in its communication network in Summerside that will allow for the expansion of new services and enhancements to existing services in Summerside and surrounding communities. The network construction will be completed by Spring 2008.

The six million dollar investment by the company will mean that the Town of Summerside and the communities of Slemon Park, Kensington and Miscouche will have access to Eastlink OnDemand and High Definition programming once construction is complete.

Through this investment in technology, Eastlink will be prepared to launch future services and expand the availability of Eastlink Telephone to even more communities on the Island. In the coming weeks and months, current Eastlink customers will be contacted so appointments can be arranged to transition their services to Eastlink's new network.

"We have a long history of providing cable service to Prince Edward Island and we are pleased to make this investment which will provide additional services for our Summerside customers," said Dan McKeen, co-CEO, Eastlink.

For 11 years, Eastlink has partnered with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on the 21-Hour Equipment Drive to raise more than $2 million for medical programs and equipment. In addition to raising funds for the hospital, Eastlink Television is the voice for Islanders sharing good news stories, information and education on a range of topics impacting the Island communities.
