Not sure, but I don't understand why they would be doing a neighborhood that is relatively new, compared to other neighborhoods. They've been doing "fiber only" in new neighborhoods for the past couple years (from what I remember) and prior to that they were roughing in fiber alongside the copper (to the home!) for about 5 years. Also they've been more focused on upgrading/overhauling smaller cities around MB where the copper infrastructure is in rough shape.
I could be wrong. Maybe they figured demand will be there, and there are enough new homes to just blend the older homes into the network. Still doesn't make sense, because it is quite an undertaking from my experience up north. Aerial wire isn't so bad, but with buried, they have to trench in the feeds down each street (with underground tubs) and run temp lines to homes getting the service, then trench those in once the snow's gone.
Maybe the cost is so low now, they will also start lighting up the newer areas that were roughed in. Will be interested to see.
