Winkler based Valley Fiber has added two more communities to its growing list of clients.

The local tech firm has signed a deal to provide dedicated high speed Internet to the town of Carman and rural municipality of Dufferin.

Under the initiative, residents in Carman will be offered a dedicated fiber to home service, and Dufferin residents will be able to access wireless Internet through a new tower being installed in the Carman industrial park that will be linked to the fiber network.

"Communication technology is the wave of the future, and we felt that for our community to move forward, it was very important that we be part of the process, said Reeve George Gray."

Dufferin's investment in the project will total $65,000.

Gray is hopeful they'll have some of their ratepayers hooked up to the service by next summer or fall.

Carman, meanwhile, has committed $500,000 toward their project. Carman Mayor Brent Owen calls the deal a good investment for his community.

"Our residents have asked for faster more reliable Internet and we were looking at some different options. Valley Fiber had the right deal for us at this time."

Valley Fiber expects to have its dedicated service in Carman ready to go in 2020.
