A local internet and television provider will be increasing the availability of its service over the next month.

North Eastern Ontario Technologies will be expanding its services eastward to Cochrane as well as farther south towards Kirkland Lake, Sudbury, Elliot Lake and Espanola.

Co-Owners Francis and Matthieu Lamontagne say the expansion will create more competition within these communities.

They both say considering the very limited amount of services currently available to these residents, this will be a big boost.

The owners hope to see that the work is done and all services are up and running by the end of April.
