The RDCK is looking into building a fire optic link with the Nelson and District Community Complex.

Fibre optic link suggested for rec complex

The regional district is looking into creating a fibre-optic link between its office and the Nelson and District Community Complex.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay is looking into creating a fibre-optic link between its Lakeside Drive office and the Nelson and District Community Complex.

According to a staff report, the proposal would require the regional district to pay the capital costs of up to $40,000 and the City of Nelson would charge an additional monthly fee of $400.

However, it would result in a savings of $450 per month on Internet charges at the rec complex, and $436 per month on telephone lines, as the systems could be linked between the two buildings.

Based on the net monthly savings alone, it would take less than seven years to pay off the capital investment — which could be done in the form of a monthly lease.

Having the complex connected by a high speed fibre-optic network “would improve the performance of their computer systems significantly,” the report says.
