CCI Wireless is proud to donate to local causes in Kitscoty, Mundare, Sedgewick and Forestburg
Community is one of CCI’s four core organizational values. When we find success, we consider it our privilege to give back in the communities where we work and live. This principle led us to start a “community giveback” promotion this summer.
Months ago, before the launch of CCI service in four new Wired Towns, we asked community leaders if there was a local fundraiser to which CCI could contribute. Our idea was to donate $25 to a designated community project for each customer we earned in Kitscoty, Mundare, Sedgewick and Forestburg. The idea came to fruition in November, when our Wired internet sales team travelled to each town, armed with a big cheque!
“It’s important to us as a company to invest in the communities that we operate within. Meeting the residents of these places and seeing their passion for these projects has made this a personally rewarding experience.” Martin Kraus, Wired Sales Lead.
Because of the positive feedback about the impact of this project, we decided to extend this promotion until December 31, 2019.
Kitscoty Minor Ball Diamond Upgrade
The Kitscoty Royals Minor Ball association has been fundraising to upgrade their baseball diamond facilities this year. The project involves replacing the backstop and fencing, with a price tag of $15,000.
On November 18, CCI Wired sales associate Mark presented Chris Kuntz, president of Kitscoty Minor Ball, with a big cheque for $500!
Kitscoty became our 11th Wired Town in Alberta this past June. Sharon Williams, CAO of Kitscoty, says “It’s nice to offer alternatives to our community that are looking for a reliable [internet] service.”
Mundare Parks Society
The Village of Mundare has been raising money to build an outdoor pickleball court for the community, led by the local Parks Society. Pickleball is a paddleball sport, like racquetball, that combines elements of tennis, badminton, ping-pong and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles to hit a perforated polymer ball, like a Wiffle Ball, over a net. It is played inside or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. This sport has been gaining popularity as it is accessible for people of all ages and skill levels.

Mundare became our 12th Wired Town in Alberta this past June. Trisha Ming-Brison of Mundare says, “People who I have spoken to about [CCI Wired internet] have been very happy with the new internet offering. They are happy with the speed, the customer service is quick and efficient and being in rural Alberta, it’s nice to have options to choose from.”
Sedgewick Lake Park’s “Battle River Splash Zone”
The Sedgewick Lake Park Association has helped to build a new spray park facility for the Town of Sedgewick. The grand opening for the Battle River Splash Zone event in July was a great success with more than 200 people in attendance. This new facility provides a place for the community to gather at the local campsite and for kids to cool off during hot days. The Mayor cut a big ribbon and gave a nod to CCI’s contribution to the project, which we are very happy to do!
On November 19, Martin presented the Sedgewick Lake Park Association with a big cheque for $750!
Sedgewick became our 13th Wired Town in Alberta this past June. Jim Fedyk, CAO of Sedgewick, says “As a small community we are grateful for initiatives such as this. We would like to thank CCI for their contribution to the Spray Park committee.”
Forestburg Community Enhancement Fund
The Village of Forestburg established the Forestburg & District Community Enhancement Fund (CEF) in 1997 to provide a tax-deductible opportunity for individuals to donate funds to be used for any project or activity enhancing the quality of life for residents.
The Village celebrated its 100th anniversary the weekend of August 2, hosting a trade show and parade! CCI participated in the weekend-long tradeshow, setting up a booth and interacting with residents to talk about how their connectivity needs can be met with Wired services.
On November 18, Martin presented the Village with a big cheque for $1050!
Forestburg became our 14th Wired Town in Alberta this past June. Blaise Young, Mayor of Forestburg, says “The Village of Forestburg believes in the importance of giving back to the community. We look forward to our continued relationship with CCI Wireless!”
If you live in Kitscoty, Mundare, Sedgewick or Forestburg you can Get Wired too, and benefit your community!
We are pleased to extend our promotion for Wired service sign-ups in these four communities until December 31, 2019, with $25 per new customer going towards these community initiatives! Until the end of the year, new customers can save up to $350 with a free install and promotional pricing on Wired internet.
Our Wired services provide unlimited data with speeds up to 50 Mbps, and is our most reliable internet connection, as it plugs directly into your home. We are pleased to offer a new internet option in these communities, which is distinct from our classic wireless internet solution for rural and remote areas.
How Wired Works
Our mandate is to find the best customized solution to connect each area we serve, to provide inner-city connections to the outer limits.
Unlike our Wireless service, CCI Wired uses existing town infrastructure to feed a hard-wired connection to homes in small Alberta communities. Our partnership with TELUS allows CCI to deliver internet through existing phone line infrastructure, resulting in reliable internet without a huge construction project. This hard-wired connection enables a higher-speed offering to each home within the townsite.
