Cogeco Cable's Digital Phone service now in Georgetown

MONTREAL, March 15 - Today, Cogeco Cable launched its Digital Phone service in Georgetown.

Territories and clientele

Like the residents of regions already served in Ontario and Québec, the majority of Georgetown residents will be able to enjoy this attractive offer, starting today, whether or not they already subscribe to a Cogeco Cable
service. Currently, 35% of homes passed in the Corporation's territories have access to Digital Phone service. Service will continue to be rolled out to most cities in Cogeco Cable's territories by the end of 2006.

A comprehensive, accessible, and competitive offering

Cogeco Cable's unique and all-inclusive Digital Phone service package includes unlimited calling - routed on Cogeco Cable's private network - in Canada and the continental United States, the five most popular calling
features (Voice Mail, Call Display, Call Waiting, Visual Call Waiting and Call Forwarding) as well as basic operator assistance and information services.

Georgetown residents, along with those of areas already served in Ontario, can now take advantage of this offer for as little as $44.99 per month if they subscribe to Cogeco Cable's HSI and cable television service.
They can also benefit from a highly attractive promotion: $10 off their monthly bill for one year. This represents savings of up to 50% for a similar combination of phone services offered by the incumbent telephone company in
those cities.
