North Huron - HuronTel comes to Wingham

Wingham Advance Times

The Township of North Huron and HuronTel are pleased to announce that HuronTel has purchased land in Wingham’s Industrial Park and plans to install fibre optic cable to every address in Wingham to provide businesses and residents with the most sophisticated and competitive connectivity available.

HuronTel will be building a telecommunications centre at 77 North Street in Wingham that will include room for customer service, installation, and repair activities.

From this facility, HuronTel will be constructing a fibre optic network that will allow any business or residence in Wingham to connect to a number of services the company provides on the most advanced communications platform available - fibre optics. Construction will begin this spring and will be completed by the end of the year. Notification will be provided to residents street by street.

“We are very excited about the project and the opportunity to work with North Huron and advance Wingham’s telecommunications infrastructure,” said HuronTel’s general manager Glenn Grubb.

“This is great news for Wingham residents and businesses, and it complements other projects and initiatives underway that will generate more investment, residential growth, and economic development,” said North Huron’s CAO Gary Long. “North Huron continues to develop as a regional commercial and service hub and this is reflected in the substantial public and private investments.”

Since 2008, HuronTel has been actively building its fibre optic network and is currently providing its fibre based services in Goderich, Lucknow, and portions of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh, Huron-Kinloss, and Kincardine. HuronTel is one of the region’s oldest and most respected telecommunications service providers and has approximately10,000 customers in the local region with 100 years of history behind it.
