TekSavvy Launches Fibre Internet in Tilbury

TekSavvy announced on Monday it has launched fibre-to-the-home internet in the town of Tilbury in Chatham-Kent, Ontario.

Fibre internet with download speeds up to 1 Gbps are now available to 830 homes and businesses in Tilbury, while service will continue to rollout with completion set for this summer.

“High-speed fibre internet service is a game-changer for Tilbury,” said Charlie Burns, Chief Technology Officer at TekSavvy, in an issued statement. “We’re proud to deliver the connectivity that will make a difference to the community.”

“Tilbury is a vital community that straddles one of the busiest highways in Canada,” added Chatham-Kent Mayor Darrin Canniff. “It’s more than appropriate that it be part of the fastest information highway available.”

TekSavvy says those signing up for its Fibre 1000 Unlimited package on a 24-month term commitment, can get a $20 monthly bill credit for their first 12 months of service.
