Eastlink opens new store in Charlottetown Mall

As part of a major investment towards expanding its retail footprint, Eastlink has opened the doors to a new location at the Charlottetown Mall.

"We are more focused than ever on providing the best customer experience possible," says Lee Bragg, CEO Eastlink. "As we make the foray into the wireless market, the addition of these new locations makes Eastlink even more accessible."

The new retail environment is designed to promote a warm, inviting and family-friendly atmosphere. Parents of young children can experience Eastlink's video entertainment services in the comfort of a home theatre-like setting, while the little ones enjoy a kid zone designed with them in mind. In addition to the more modern look, Eastlink's new locations offer a larger, more open concept to facilitate a highly interactive, hands-on experience of all the company's products and services, which will soon include Eastlink's much anticipated wireless products later this year.

"When we designed the new retail environment we did so with the objective of inviting our customers to experience the full range of what we have to offer like OnDemand, HD, 3D and Whole Home DVR, and have fun doing it," says Bragg.

"Soon, our customers will be able to enjoy that same experience with our wireless products, which we expect will be very popular bundled with our existing products and services."

    Is this a news story, or an advertisement?

    Unfortunately XComa, you did indeed feed a moronic troll. He/she has posted here before just trying to stir trouble and getting their jollies on the responses. Sad really, but that is how these clowns operate and what motivates them.

    Do you really think these are the only reasons people live in Rural areas is for low taxes? There are many many reasons why people live in the country. The Sky looks beautiful at night without the city light. Sometimes all you can hear is Nature. So I guess peace and quiet is another good reason to live in rural areas. Typically in rural areas you will have friendly neighbors with a community spirit. I myself never gave Taxes a thought. ... I must say I was a little shocked by the attitude conveyed in your comments and immediately wondered if you are indeed from Prince Edward Island. You seem to be hung up on money. That happens to a lot of people. Perhaps you should think of other things. Things that make you happy. . ... I hope I didn't just feed a Troll.

    I love just outside Morell and don't even have access to dial up or regular cable. Some internet access would be nice so I don't have to rely on my phone for web.

    I don't call 1.5Mbps high speed. You can't even stream properly most of the time. Bell certainly keeps upping their cost for the service and without any compitition we have to pay. Eastlink has fiber over most of the Island so why can't they deliver high speed to more than the more lucrative high population areas. Both Bell and Eastlink only give high speed to these areas only.

    How about expanding your service areas? Us Bell customers who are stuck with 1.5Mbps internet service and no home phone choices only a few minutes from the city would love to have some competition so we don't have to just pay whatever bell fells like charging for their subpar service. Had Eastlink when I lived on the edge of Stratford, why hasn't it come out to York yet?

      To Annoyed Bell Customer: You can thank Ghiz and his handshake and handout of public money with Aliant behind closed doors. If the job of bringing HSI to rural PEI had been an open, tendered process, Eastlink would have brought in a bid and we might have other choices in rural PEI. As it is now, we the taxpayers have subsidized Aliant's expansion on PEI. How can we expect better service coverage from Eastlink in rural PEI when our government is subsidizing their competition?

      Why should EastLink or Bell Aliant customers in urban areas that are cheaper to service be forced to pay to string lines out in rural areas? I am 100% opposed to this. You choose to live in a rural area for low taxes and low services. Get used to both. Forever. And I hope they dig up that paved road in front of your house sometime soon as well.
