Ftth sub-contracting companies in New-Brunswick...
I'm looking for a sub-contracting company in New-Brunswick, Canada. I'm a fiber splicer (contractor) looking for expansion in the province.
Can anyone give me a hint who's looking for contractors?
Thank you in advance,

I'll be very happy when it arrives in Newfoundland.
Aliant rolling out their FTTH in NB forced Rogers to roll out their 80 Mbps package to compete.
The fastest in Newfoundland? Aliant only offer up to 13 Mbps (only up to 7 if you subscribe to their IPTV) and Rogers offer a 16 Mbps / 90 gig a month cap package for $70. (Rogers website say they offer the 25 and 50 Mbps lines in Newfoundland, but there is no DOCSIS3 rollout anywhere in the province, it's a website mistake)

This is good news, that they are still planning to expand the Fibre network. Hopefully they will continue to expand beyond 2012 and bring Fibre to the entire Atlantic Provinces (or at least NB! )
I love my FibreOp service - great web experience and TV is good quality as well with the basic packages suiting my family's watching patterns.

Accelerated rollout of fibre to the home technology

OK - I am going to make the jump, mainly because my massive discount with Bell TV is coming to an end, and with the incredible increase in internet speeds, it's a no brainer.
I have a question though for anyone that currently HAS FibreOP TV - more specifically with regards to the receivers... what models are Aliant providing?
The single tuner / standard box?
The dual-tuner PVR?
Are they using the same proprietary type of hardware that Bell uses with their satellite service? Does the signal go through the ethernet or RG6 cables?
Thanks in advance!!

I spoke to Aliant just a couple of days ago. I was going to cancel my service and go with Rogers (mainly because I want to get rid of satellite and the deal is better if you bundle phone and internet).
Anyway, the lady told me that Moncton would be up and running on fibre this summer for TV and internet. That convinced me to stay.
So, hopefully before September, it will all be in place for Moncton.

Guys I just checked out the alliant site, and I do believe the prices took a drop, especialy for the larger packages
Ok, my bad, it looks like they just rounded it off

Nice pickup friendly.
I think the roll out in my area of Moncton will be quick. 2 years ago Aliant already hung fiber down my street. I though it was to support the FTTN roll out but I hope it's for FTTH.

Wow they are expanding fast.

Halifax coming soon?
In the past few months, I've seen a bunch of crews putting up fiber on the poles in south-end Halifax. I don't know if it's related to fibreop, but one can always hope.
