HALIFAX - Canadian telco Bell Aliant announced that it would expand its FibreOP fiber-to-the-home network in Nova Scotia, providing access to an additional 27,000 residents in the New Glasgow and Annapolis Valley areas. The additional $13 million investment brings the overall FibreOP investment in Nova Scotia to more than $83 million.

"We are investing significantly in this network and our FibreOP services in the province so that customers can experience Internet and TV to their full potential, whether it's for a school project, working from home or pure entertainment," says Kelly Duplisea, VP for FibreOP and TV. "FibreOP services and bundles not only provide the fastest Internet upload and download speeds available, but now include the best in-market TV product available for customers in these communities."

The first customers in New Glasgow will come online later this month. Services will follow in areas of the Annapolis Valley beginning in the fall.

Earlier this year, Bell Aliant announced an upgrade of its Internet and TV service. FibreOP 2.0, which has already been implemented for Internet services, provides symmetrical Internet access - a first in Canada for any major service provider. Television services will soon be enhanced to FibreOP 2.0 also provides enhanced functions and features for TV, including whole-home PVR, upgraded VoD service, picture-in-picture browsing and advanced search capability.

By the end of 2012, Bell Aliant will have invested almost half a billion dollars in FTTH and made fiber available to more than 600,000 homes and businesses.
