A company which was borne from BC Rail when it decided several years ago to create an internal telecommunications infrastructure. It turns out they overbuilt it, and thus, decided to split it into its own company in order to turn a profit from sale of said infrastructure. For the most part, it uses microwave frequencies to offer data services. That OC3 running into Squamish? All microwaves.

It was eventually bought out by RSLCom Canada, a larger telecommunications outfit. Despite that, the Westel division of RSLCom appears to be retaining its old personal and small-business charm with very knowledgable and pleasant technicians.

If you ever need good high-speed data services in British Columbia, give Westel a ring, I'm sure they'll have something which will work well for your needs.
