This department was born in 1998 out of the efforts of eight cooperatives to obtain cable service.
Cable networks had to be built from the ground up in most of these communities. Initially the service was in analogue mode, but now subscribers enjoy digital service, allowing them to choose the channel line-up for their package based on their TV-watching preferences and habits.
Other cooperatives joined the adventure in 2011, and now cooperatives in 12 communities offer this service to their members.
Certain shows are now available in high definition, for an unparalleled television experience.
This initiative would not have been possible without the support of local technicians who ensure the network is operating properly and who maintain a direct connection with members. Technicians receive periodic training to keep their skills up to date.
The world we live in is changing rapidly, and it is essential to stay in touch with members through electronic media. This is why the FCNQ has entrusted the Telecommunications Department with managing websites and social media.
