Re: [Aliant] Bell FibreOP coming to Greater Sudbury!
Vianet has likely more fibre than anyone in the city of Sudbury right now. They have been hard at work for the pass few years pushing out fibre to all the major roads in Sudbury. If you ever wanted to know if Vianet had fibre close to your area look up at the poles and look for yellow tags. Each company has their own tags. Agilis which is own by the city with our tax payer dollars have blue tags. Eastlink tend to use yellow spiral wrap and Bell have orange tags along with orange spiral wrap.
Because they have fiber all over Sudbury they can easily now branch off and deploy it to all the homes in Sudbury.
As for the comment about equipment. Fibre is normally all passive equipment. It does not require power out in the field. That's why you will only see enclosures or even larger cabinets mounted to poles.
Hope this helps to clarify a few thins about Vianet FTTH project.
