An extensive fibre optic network allows the ability to provide high-speed digital voice and data access. Because both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National railways pass through the city, Kamloops is located on most of the Canadian transcontinental fibre optic cable routes. As such, Bell, Telus, Big Pipe (Shaw), and BCNET all have major fibre access locations in Kamloops.
