FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Halifax, Nova Scotia - Eastlink is trialing Wireless Internet (Wi Fi) technology in various locations within the peninsula of Halifax. Over 30 access points are currently operational. Eastlink's service covers large areas of the downtown of Halifax primarily in the Spring Garden Road area. Within these areas, users can access the Internet and retrieve email from any location within the Wi Fi zone.
"Wi Fi is an important project allowing us to test new technology, which will be a great tool for attracting businesses to the area or the thousands of tourists who frequent the city and wish to stay connected," said Lee Bragg, Eastlink's Co Chief Executive Officer. "While we trial the Wi Fi service, we are continuing to consider options to enhance and expand the range of services we provide to residential and business customers."
During this trial period, Eastlink is offering customers free access to its new Wi Fi zone and in exchange is looking for feedback from its users. Wi Fi users are asked to provide comments about their experience using the service. The feedback will be essential in helping to understand the type of usage on the network to ensure that future investment fits with customer demand.
The trial, which is open to everyone, allows users to access the Internet from a wireless device like a laptop or personal digital assistants (PDA). A service area map and more information on the trial can be found by logging on to wifi.Eastlink.ca.
