Bell Aliant Expands FibreOP in Ontario

  • FTTH
GREATER SUDBURY, ONTARIO – Canadian provider Bell Aliant is extending its FTTH network in Ontario, investing $30 million to bring FibreOP triple-play services to 55,000 homes and businesses in the Greater Sudbury area.

“We’re excited to bring our future-proof network to Greater Sudbury,” says Karen Sheriff, president and CEO of Bell Aliant. “Greater Sudbury is the next logical step for our expansion of FibreOP. It is our third largest market and the largest outside of Atlantic Canada, and the extensive aerial infrastructure in Greater Sudbury makes it ideal for FTTH technology. We’ve learned a lot from a successful build in Atlantic Canada, and the time is right for us to proceed in Sudbury.”

Mayor Marianne Matichuk of Greater Sudbury comments, “Greater Sudbury will now have an added edge, making our community even more attractive for new investments.”

By the end of 2012, Bell Aliant will have invested approximately half a billion dollars to extend FTTH to more than 600,000 homes and businesses.
