As William Shatner used to say "Make Fiber Your Friend" (his All Bran Challenge) - yeah, I know different fiber, different spelling, but who cares... it's Shatner!
James Street, near the Brookside Mall.

will be the fastest internet in the Country when completed next year

Having moved to Fredericton 2 years ago I feel like I've won the lottery! I can't wait to ditch Rogers Extreme Plus, not just for the speed but for the customer service. Aliant seems worlds better than Rogers in that department.

I saw one of the FibreOp signs in downtown Fredericton on Smythe Street, so now just need it to hurry it's butt halfway up the hill.

Got an email from them today thanking me for showing interest in their fibre op system. They tell me I'm not in the actual footprint but will keep me posted as tp when I will be. Just like the guy had said....

That's what urks me. They have all these flashy ads in the papers, on TV, in emails but nothing is really informative. So far, it looks like a product that is being put out ASAP in order to try and beat the competition. Unless they are keeping in a secret and have a big bang of a surprise when it does come reality.

I live in West saint john too down by the Lancaster mall, I have seen some Aliant guys using some instruments to scan the ground but I don't know if it has to do with Fibreop or if it has to do with construction the city is doing on my street...maybe they broke a line or something...

I Noticed a box that looks very similar to this one



newly installed on a pole outside Harris & Roome(across from the lakeside inn) on prospect street yesterday, the picture above is of a FIOS pole box. I wonder if this has anything to do with fibreop.
