@Home Network Thursday announced a deal with Videon CableSystems Inc., Canada's fifth-largest cable operator, to provide its high-speed Internet service to that company's customers.
@Home said the deal would give it access to several key Canadian markets, including Edmonton and Winnpeg. The service will be marketed as Videon@Home. Deployment is scheduled to begin later this year.
"Videon@Home will bring speed, convenience and exciting local national content to our cable customers," said Vaughn Tozer, Videon's president of Canadian cable operations.
Videon will join the @Home Canada consortium, created in 1997 by @Home, Rogers CableSystems and Shaw Communications. @Home Canada will develop new content for the service and will be able to take advantage of content partnerships that have been signed with several of Canada's multimedia providers.
