Bell Aliant FiberOP coming to Nova Scotia
June 2, 2010
Bell Aliant—a regional communications provider company—has announced that FiberOP, its fiber-to-the-home network (FTTH), is coming to Nova Scotia. The company also announced its new internet speed of 170 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload, noting it is “the first time internet speed like this will be available to residential customers in the region". These services will become available to Nova Scotia come the fall.
Bell Aliant will be investing $15
million in the Sydney area to bring FiberOP services to
more than 30,000 homes and businesses. As part of the previously
announced 2010 capital program, Bell Aliant hopes to connect 140,000 homes
and businesses with FTTH (worth $65 million) by the end of this year. The province is contributing $2 million to the project.
