Xplornet Communications is expanding further into the Prairie provinces with its recent acquisition of Swift High Speed, a Manitoba-based broadband provider.
According to the Press release, Xplornet will win 6,000 clients in rural southeast Manitoba, 218 km of fiber optic network and 119 transmission tower locations in the deal.
The acquisition is part of Xplornet’s ongoing plan to augment its 5G network and infrastructure in rural Manitoba.
In May 2021, the Internet service provider bought more than 160 cell phone towers in the province and two more were launched in February.
Xplornet itself is based in New Brunswick and is specifically focused on delivering high-speed internet to rural areas of Canada.
