We’re bringing our
FIBER NETWORK to even MORE AREAS
Fiber is coming to your home! Soon you’ll have access to FiberFAST™ internet with speeds up 1 gigabit, digital TV with over 100 channels, and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone service with unlimited long distance.
Coming in Fall/Winter 2020
We’re in the final stages of planning and our crews will soon be installing fiber optic cable in your area. Construction should be started in the coming weeks and most homes can expect to be connected to fiber by late fall/winter.
Now Scheduling Installations
- Bison Ridge (December 2020 Completion)
- Hawley Estates (December 2020 Completion)
- Winnipeg Junction (Spring 2021 Completion)
What You Can Expect in your fiberhood
Timeline: Fall 2020
Precision boring and plowing machines will install fiber optic cables underground from our central office to a box outside your home.
Construction takes place with minimal disturbance to your yard.
Connecting the Fiber
Timeline: Fall/Winter 2020
A fiber optic cable is run from outside your home to an optical network terminal (ONT) that our technicians will mount inside your home.
This equipment is what provides your home with internet, Digital TV, and phone service.
