Well really St johns is not that big, and with fiberop the longest part of the install is aliant waiting for what ever contracter the have went with to install the steel cable support system for them to string the fiber on. Once that is in place the fiber really takes no time to install, heck Moncton was only to have been a 4.5 month job once the lines were in place but due to the crazy snowfall we got they prettly well lost a full month. So once u start to see those steel lines up aliant should be moving in any time there after that. My best guess would be a completion date of late august early September depending on weather of course lol
well in all honesty other than the discount you receive for bundling if i was not in an apartment i would not have the Aliant TV service just because of the HD TV quality as it is. The HD on Aliant is not even remotely close to the quality of Bev TV's HD, but on the other hand on FiberOP you get what will be a full featured VOD service. so if you don't care about the bundle discount or VOD i would go with Bev for HD and fiberOP internet.
nope exact same service, just minus the occasional pixilation u get on dsl tv.
