Telus


The Telus layer shows the location of known trenched Telus cable in a cyan colour that can be labeled on the map.  While there is no indication of the specifics of the line (cable, fibre optic, etc.) the Telus layer does show what side of the road ditch the Telus line is on.  Telus stopped providing updates to this dataset in January of 2010.
