Ftth sub-contracting companies in New-Brunswick...

Hello there,

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,

Bordak 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)

can3gxw 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

From Aliant's Quarterly Report
Bell Aliant expects to invest $350 million over 2011 and 2012 on fibre to the home. This accelerated investment will add approximately $100 million annually to Bell Aliant's current capital program run rate for those years. While almost all homes and businesses in Bell Aliant's competitive territory have access to the company's high-speed Internet services, this expansion of FTTH will mean by the end of 2012 over 600,000 homes and businesses or approximately one third of Bell Aliant's competitive territory will have access to this leading edge technology, significantly increasing Bell Aliant's TV coverage area and advancing its competitive position.

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!!

willise 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.

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.
That was probably FTTN when they were deploying their TV service.

Anteater Any news on expansions outside New Brunswick?

AgentGreen 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

Bell Aliant, with the support of the Government of New Brunswick, today announced their 2010 expansion plan for their FibreOP(TM) services in New Brunswick - increasing their financial commitment across this province. The plan includes fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network expansion into several communities including:

- City of Bathurst and the City of Miramichi
- The Greater Saint John area including the towns of Rothesay,
Quispamsis, and Grand Bay-Westfield
- The Greater Moncton area including the City of Moncton, City of Dieppe
and Town of Riverview

Wow they are expanding fast.

friendly I talked to guy who is laying the fiber, they are currently laying it on the west side up around Manawagonish Road he said west side of Saint John will be done first within 3 months.

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.

friendly I called and the guy said saint john won't start offering it until spring and that saint john won't be completely wired until 6-12 months.
