Aliant, Atlantic Canada’s leading information and communications technology provider, has signed an agreement with Apple to add the MacBook to the Aliant Computer Purchase Program line-up. Aliant is the first North American service provider to launch an Internet package with an Apple notebook.
“Today, we are proud and excited to be the first service provider to sell an Apple notebook with Internet service,” said Heather Tulk, senior vice president of marketing for Aliant. “We’ve been helping Atlantic Canadians get online with the latest computers for over three years now. It’s because of our customers’ feedback that we’re now offering this popular MacBook exclusively to Aliant Internet subscribers.”
With an expansive broadband network that covers nearly 90 percent of Atlantic Canada and online expertise that has been recognized worldwide, Aliant offers customers in Atlantic Canada a number of industry-leading products and services. The Aliant Computer Purchase Program, introduced in 2005 and a first for the telecommunications industry, was designed to connect more Atlantic Canadians with online technology by combining Internet services and computers together for one monthly price on the same bill. The Aliant Computer Purchase Program gives customers a convenient and cost-effective way to purchase a laptop or desktop and also connect with Internet access.
The MacBook, with a 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 1 GB Memory and 120 GB hard drive is available now for Aliant Internet customers for as low as $47/month over 36 months.
