Timmins, Ontario - At a special ribbon cutting ceremony held this afternoon, Eastlink was joined by Timmins Mayor Tom Laughren to officially open its new retail location in Timmins Square.
“We are delighted to open the doors to a greater retail presence in the Timmins area,” says Jack Nolan, Regional Manager.
“This new store provides our customers with a convenient location where they can learn more about our industry-leading video, internet, and telephone services, while offering a location for bill payment and other services.
Mr. Nolan commented on the company’s long-term commitment to the Timmins area, supported by the significant investment made by Eastlink in a recent network rebuild that has enabled the company to offer high definition or HDTV, OnDemand programming, faster internet speeds, competitive local telephone service, and Eastlink’s flagship Watch, Surf and Talk, triple play bundle.
“Stay tuned,” says Roland Magnan, Technical Manager. “We are gearing up to introduce our customers to even faster internet speeds and over 100 new channels, including more High Definition channels in the weeks and months ahead.”
Today’s opening is one of many special Grand Opening activities including an exciting day of prizes (including a draw for an HD Capable DVR), other surprises and cake this Saturday January 22nd , during which EZ Rock and Q92 Radio will broadcast live from 10:00 a.m.– 2:00 p.m.
