O-NET was born out of a passion to create a connected community in Olds where residents and businesses have access to the kinds of technology services and experiences you’d find in larger cities.
In 2004, the Technology Committee of the Olds Institute for Community & Regional Development began focusing on laying the foundation for this connected community with the development of an Open Telecommunication Network. In 2011, the construction of a state-of-the-art fibre-optic network began.
Over a decade in the making, O-NET provides every resident, business and municipal facility in the town of Olds, Alberta with advantages such as the highest quality Internet services in the industry, the latest high-definition television features, fully customizable telephone systems, mass storage and virtual private networks.
O-NET brings together and delivers unique broadcasting, phone and Internet services to our residential and business customers.
O-NET is creating greater opportunities for the community by removing the digital divide and providing our residents and businesses with unfettered access to online entertainment, resources, and commerce.
O-NET continues our pursuit of innovations that ensure a strong, sustainable future for our community. We work hard every day to lead the telecommunications industry in offering new technologies, state-of-the-art services and unmatched customer experiences.
O-NET is 100% owned by the Town of Olds. As a Municipally Controlled Corporation, O-NET operates as a public body under the laws and regulations of the Province of Alberta.
