A few comments:

1. Fibe can mean FTTN (Fibre to the Node) or FTTH (Fibre to the home). There are significant differences between these offerings with FTTN being inferior to FTTH. Make sure you understand what you're getting in terms of internet speed (which is bundled with Fibe) and Hardware capabilities.

2. I believe the cable provider in Windsor is Cogeco? You should familiarize yourself with the hardware of both possible providers as well as the channel offering. Each provider has pluses and minuses, so make sure the equipment does what you want it to and that you can get the channels you want. Perhaps you have some friends or neighbours that you can talk to about the two providers or what they think of their provider in particular.

3. When discussing this with provider CSRs please realize that they sometimes don't tell the truth, or exaggerate, or simply don't know and sometimes make things up to tell you what you want to hear.
