DSG Communications Ltd., a subsidiary of Lite Access Technologies Inc. (CSE: LTE, Pink Sheets: LTCCF) has received a contract worth CAN$400,000 to install a fiber-optic network in Chilliwack, British Columbia. DSG will leverage Lite Access's proprietary micro-trench and air-blown fiber technologies for the 3.5-km Public Works Fiber Optics Link, which will connect several municipal buildings in the city.
The municipal network will help Chilliwack offset the cost of current service provider connectivity, according to Lite Access.
"We are pleased that the City of Chilliwack has approved the use of our products and services. Chilliwack is just the latest in a number of cities that have recognized the multiple advantages of our products and deployment techniques," said Mike Plotnikoff, CEO of Lite Access.
Lite Access says the company and its DSG subsidiary have received contracts to install similar networks in other municipalities in Western Canada, including QNet in Coquitlam, BC; the Township of Langley; Corporation of Delta, BC; Banff; and Waterton, Alberta.
"We anticipate additional agreements similar to this as entities realize the value that Lite Access and DSG can bring to their organizations," Plotnikoff predicted.
