CORNER BROOK — Bell Aliant is investing $4.1 million to bring its fibre-to-the home network to Corner Brook.
This expansion brings FibreOP services to more than 10,000 homes and businesses in the area.
“We are excited to continue our expansion in Newfoundland by bringing this technology to our customers in the Corner Brook area,” said Andre LeBlanc, vice-president of residential services. “Demand for bandwidth continues to grow, and more and more, our customers are looking for faster speeds on more connected devices. That’s what FibreOP can offer — unprecedented speed and nearly limitless capacity.”
In April 2011 Bell Aliant announced it would bring FibreOP to 60,000 homes and businesses in the St. John’s area. With today’s announcement, Bell Aliant’s total investment in the province reaches more than $26 million to expand FibreOP.
Fibre-to-the-home is a broadband network made of glass fibre-optic cable that connects straight to a customers’ home or business. FTTH dramatically increases connection speeds and data capability available to users. Bell Aliant’s FibreOP network offers Internet download speeds of up to 250 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 30 Mbps — the fastest available in Atlantic Canada. FibreOP is also the only network that offers Twitter and Facebook apps for TV — so customers can watch, surf and socialize while enjoying the best TV product in the market.
Corner Brook customers can pre-register for FibreOP service at www.bellaliant.net/FibreOP, or call 1-866-FIBREOP (1-866-342-7367) to be notified when service is available in their area.
