I'm frustrated with how slow it is taking bell to put fiber lines in my area. We have been "slated" for fiber the last year and yet nothing has happened. Does anyone know if Amherstburg, more specifically the Kingsbridge subdivision will be outfitted with fiber anytime soon?

And the card specified Fiber Optic and I believe it mentioned Fiber to the home....but as was mentioned prior...until it is in it could mean anything. And thanks for all the information in the above post. Cogeco is our local cable company and their promotion right now is hard to beat...but I am curious to see if Bell pushes hard once fibe is in.

Bell fibe 100/10 with Fibe TV

I currently have bell fibe tv, internet (50/10) and home phone. My neighbours across the street are able to get internet 100/10 with their tv service. the highest speed I can get with internet and TV is only 50/10 with dual bonding. I assume this could be related to the cable run on the street? I was told I can get 100/10 but No TV service.

Not sure where you live, but I had 50/10 and upgraded to 100/10 double bonded -Internet,Home phone & Fibe TV. So it possible you can gewt it. I'm in a older section of the city and I got it, so maybe you can to?

Amherstburg, ON Fiber Build

Hey Guys,

Living in Amherstburg, in an area with no cable, we are stuck with very slow 2 mbps DSL. Prior to the new year, Bell along with the town announced that every home and farm in Amherstburg will be fitted with fiber to the home! Living in the Kingsbridge subdivision I haven't seen any work going on however checking with the mayor and with Bell's website, homes behind me that are a year or so old (that were fit with fiber) have access to ftth!!

I figured that if there are enough people that use DH from A'burg, we could all be spotters and report any activity that we see from bell.

They've been installing FTTH in the Pointe West subdivision in Amherstburg. It's been pretty steady work for the past 1-2 months in that subdivision with some days being busier than others. Crews have been running the conduit and pulling the fibre lines. You can see coils of fibre on the sides of some of the houses as well. Hopefully they'll get to Golfview and the 'older' parts of Kingsbridge soon. I feel your pain!

A bell guy just came to my door yesterday to inform me that installation of ftth will be starting soon! FINALLY! I recently moved over from dsl to Lime Telenet, which offers 20mbps.....not fibe speeds but much butter then dsl. Their speeds are consistent and I'm happy with the service, I only wish I switched over earlier. However, once bell finishes fiber here, I will be making the switch!

Has there been any movement on the installation of ftth in Kingsbridge neighborhood? I'm moving in next week and am currently faced with Lime Telnet as the best option. Currently on a 120Mbps with Cogeco in LaSalle so leaving that for Lime is...upsetting.

Want to jump on fibe as soon as possible.
