Aylmer, ON - Eastlink announced today that residents in Port Elgin and Paisley now have a choice in their local telephone provider with the launch of Eastlink Home Phone.
“Our customers often ask us when we can offer them home phone service,” says Eastlink’s Regional Manager Ron Mervis. “We’re excited to confirm that today is that day in Port Elgin and Paisley. And to top it off we’re offering Eastlink Home Phone free for the first year.”
Eastlink’s Home Phone service, which serves hundreds of thousands of residential as well as small and large private and public sector customers across Canada, is delivered over a highly reliable, state of the art fibre network.
Mervis explains that a more competitive marketplace benefits all consumers. “One of our strengths is bringing smaller communities like Port Elgin and Paisley highly competitive telecommunications services. We continue to invest heavily in Southwestern Ontario to ensure that we provide our customers with competitive choice, excellent value and the very best telecommunications products and services in the market.”
Eastlink’s Home Phone service has launched this fall in the communities of Ayton, Bayfield, Brucefield, Dashwood, Mildmay, Millbank, Milverton, Neustadt and Varna.
Mervis affirms that customers not only save by bundling their free phone with other Eastlink services, but they can also enjoy superior TV and internet services including ultra fast internet speeds, and the best Digital TV available with over 115 High Definition (HD) channels, thousands of titles of free OnDemand programs, and the ability to view recordings in any room with whole home DVR.
