BELL TO BEGIN LOCAL FIBRE OPTIC PROJECT NEXT YEAR 12/5/2017 8:22:14 AM
How long is Arnprior away from going fibre optic? Well, that no longer depends on which rumour you may have heard. Spokespersons for Bell Canada attended Arnprior Town Council November 25th to outline the company's plans to bring fibre on-line in the community. Brad Docksteader says, essentially, we're looking at a three-stage process.
Docksteader says early next year Bell crews will be toiling below the surface laying cable. Initially, customers will be connected from existing above-ground poles, and by 2019 the underground door-to-door connections will follow. Bell is said to be investing 10 million dollars to bring its fibre-optic network to Arnprior.
