Big Telephone Company

It’s interesting how where you live determines the scale of the universe. For example, in Ontario terms, driving the distance from Charlottetown to Tignish would be an average daily commute for hundreds of thousands of people. Whereas most people in Charlottetown, myself included, would think seriously about arranging overnight accommodations in Tignish if ever called to make the long voyage there.
In this same light, my friend Oliver points out that all my talk of Island Tel as a big telephone company is a little absurd when you look at what folks who have companies like Bell Canada, Verizon or Pacific Bell as their phone company.
Island Tel might be dysfunctional, but at least the people making it that way are within 15 minutes of my office!
