Well, its no wonder Aliant is bringing high speed internet to the entire Island, after all, high speed internet is their business.
Imagine for a second that Aliant did not make this investment, instead say the government gave $10 million to another company such as ISN Wireless.
The $10 million dollar investment into a company like ISN Wireless would definitely help them become a major player as an Island ISP, which would no doubt have them eventually move into bigger markets, like Charlottetown or Summerside. Thus, that would be an investment against Aliant which could end up hurting Aliant more then ever.
None the less, hats off to Aliant for NOT using government funds to build out their network.
