The Network

Ever since 1885, when the first telephone line was placed between Edmonton and St. Albert, Alberta’s telephone system has been expanding to reach even the smallest of communities. The system has evolved over the years and adapted to the rapidly changing technologies to help make communication by telephone as efficient and clear as possible to millions of Albertans.

Over the years, the system has grown into a massive network that spans across thousands of kilometres of forest and prairie land, often running over mountains and under water.
