Fibe Availability Discussions
Here is my story with the Fibe TV 'availability' site... you know, the one that tells you if Fibe TV is in your neighbourhood.
In Spring 2011 the site said that my neighbourhood would be setup by September 2011. Great, I thought.
Come September 2011 the site changed to 'within the next year'. So I got sad.
Come December 2011, the site just said that Fibe TV is not available in my area, with no ETA.
Around February 2012 the site said that Fibe TV would come within the next 6 months... it said that every month for 6 months.
Then, near the fall, it said 3 months! Oh boy! 3 months later, in November, it was still saying 3 months. However, in late November, 2012, the site said 'within the next month!' I was getting excited.
December passed... January passed... and it still said 'within the next month.' Until February. Now it again says that Fibe TV is simply not available in my area.
The frustrating part is (and I understand network structure and logistics) - the house next to my apartment building HAS Fibe TV available (as do the rest of the houses up the street). Fibe TV is available 300 metres to the east as well, at a friends out a couple of blocks away. It's available 300 metres to the south, at another friends.
Somehow, my area of town (NDG, near Westmount) is in this dead zone of activity. (NDG closer to Westmount has Fibe TV, though... as in, I'm 2 blocks out so I can't get it, but if you're one block out, you can).
