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.
Areas getting fiber in 2020:
- Bison Ridge
- Boutin Addition
- Hawley Estates
- Riverview Country Estates
- Winnipeg Junction
The customer is typically responsible for the full cost of construction (up to $3800) when a home is outside of our service area.
However, these areas are part of a planned fiber project area. That means you’ll pay only a $100 application fee and a nominal fully refundable $200 deposit to have your home connected to fiber.
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.
