Alternatively, contact your building manager or condo board.
The plan would be to install FOTN (Fibre Optic to the Node), in the future to launch VDSL in the future to more customers. There has been no public announcement as to when or where this service would be deployed in more areas.
With ExpressVu for Condos, you are given a special set-top-box (STB) that plugs into your existing telephone line. This single set top box is capable of delivering signals to up to three different television sets in your dwelling unit. It does this by using three different analogue channels (3, 8, 13) to deliver programming to each TV through one set of coax wiring. Tune each of your TV's to one of those channels.
In fact, you probably will be able to use the existing cable TV in your suite to do this, since if it is not connected to Rogers' network, there will not be any signal conflict.
Three UHF remotes allow you to change the channel on each respective TV. UHF remotes do not need line of sight to operate; they will work through walls. So the STB can be placed anywhere, not necessiarily near a TV.
Internet is also provided through the STB via an ethernet port. You may connect a computer directly to the ethernet port, or use a router supplied by Sympatico, or you may use a router of your own.
