This news from the [excellent] Telecom Update from Angus TeleManagement:
ALIANT RETIRES PROVINCIAL TELCO NAMES: The four Atlantic telcos, NewTel, IslandTel, MT&T, and NBTel, merged in 1999, but kept their separate provincial identities. That’s now changing: the telco will operate as Aliant in all four provinces, and has launched a region-wide campaign to promote the brand.
The most obvious change is the new Island website for Aliant, which, confusingly, exists in parallel with the website formerly known as islandtel.pe.ca. Hopefully this mess will clear up, and we’ll have a clearer source for Aliant-related information in future.
