TELUS is planning a proactive repair of its network to avoid potentially more impactful and prolonged outages from ongoing wildfires.

The outage will result in community isolations for Lytton, Spences Bridge, Yale, Spuzzum, Boston Bar, Fraser Acres, and Keremeos

TELUS TV, Internet, landline, and wireless services will be offline. Customers will be unable to make 911 calls.

Repairs are tentatively scheduled to begin Saturday, 10 p.m. through Sunday 6 am.

Repairs should take a couple of hours if all goes as planned.
