I would have been very surprised to see the words "unlimited" on that page (considering the 15/30 rates did not mention caps at all) if not for all the contradictions in the terms of service. I haven't had time to write what's going to be a fairly long post about that, but yeah, the tagline is "BA can do whatever they damn well feel like".

There are caps, but 15/15 and 30/30 are unlimited.

Also, 15/15 is now 20/15 and 30/30 is now 50/30 in Atl Canada.

Looks like it's rolling out

»www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showpos···ount=588

For those Sudburians, I saw 2 Bell FibreOp trucks (They were labelled as Fibreop, I don't know if they're specific to the project or just the new truck branding for Sudbury) on Attlee avenue so I figure its starting to roll out...

I'd be happy with 30/30....just waiting patiently.

The only way they'd get me is with 30/30 unlimited bundled with phone and features for 69.95/mth on a 3yr contract and must be written in contract that no caps would be imposed during that 3 yr period.

They don't seem to have gotten very far:



My friends off Lasalle (west) had an installation appointment for August 1st... The two FibreOP trucks showed up, the guys spent a few minutes searching nearby poles, apologized and added them to their growing "it's not here yet" list.

We can all thank Sudbury hydro and city hall for the delays. Unlike anything ever seen out east. Greater Sudbury open for business? I think not.

JohnB, care to expound on what our ever-vigilant and astute local politicians have to do with the matter?

For starters, getting a permit to pull some conduit across the road takes over two weeks.

Devil's advocate: Two weeks for that is a long time, but why weren't necessary permits obtained before starting construction?

Old Toll trunk line.

Weird, bcause where that line seems to go, is the train tracks...though now that I think about it, some communications companies use the railroad right-of-way to have cabling around cities and whatnot...

Sort of difficult to see from the picture, but there is a CN line that runs near that Futureshop on Barrydowne just a bit north(south?) of Lasalle lol...

Good news...The replacement router works without issue for your Sudbury FibreOp setup.

So what happened to the map on fibreop? It used to show the progress in Sudbury now its all gone.

Is Sudbury Hydro winning at killing this project?. Somehow I can see this happening as Bell/Aliant will finally get pissed off enough to say fuck it. There are plenty of other places that would be happy to have fibre installed.

...But since then, I haven't seen any, anywhere. September's over and I've heard no news about this area... Is this project stalled?

I don't think so...but have been checking, but my street is used in multiple parts of the city so it gets a little confusing...

Heh. I wouldn't count on their customer-side database giving you much useful info - it still can't tell me if my location can get DSL. ;P

Hopefully johnB is still lurking somewhere nearby...

Re: Sudbury ON - FibreOP FTTH

A few (very small) updates. I haven't seen any work being done along Notre Dame (or anywhere else in town) recently, and the few trucks I've seen were heading towards the valley. There was a truck at the corner of ND and Lasalle today, but a) there's a Bell store there, and b) it turned out to be a BTS truck. I also took this photo. It's currently a crossing point for some lines (looks to be power and cable only). It's probably just construction, but if it extends further east than the roadside buildings, it could be joined to the run near Future Shop through the railway area/swamp/rotary club trail area.

I doubt they're burying any lines anywhere. This is an aerial venture from what I can tell. If they are burying any its not much.

On that note I haven't seen much action either anywhere. Considering I was told the area I'm in was supposed to be strung by end of july/august its pretty disappointing. Maybe they meant 2013 hah

Yes, those flags say buried communication cable, who knows whose they are though. As I said, I expect this is just construction prep, likely for the roadwork going on along there - but as the pole in the background is a crossing-point, it's also plausible that they're running as many lines to the Lasalle CO as it can handle before building out from another location. Probably not, but since we don't know their infrastructure plan, I'll keep on hoping.

Vianet has been the one doing alot of underground work as well as some eastlink. Prob to save themselves some money from having to deal with a-holes from sudbury hydro.

Well well, while driving down ND this morning I saw a Vistacare truck stringing fibre in front of pioneer manor. What do you know, start doing other areas before completing the last area. Figures

Re: Sudbury ON - FibreOP FTTH - job fair Thursday 6pm

Where nitzguy's gf's parents live in New Sudbury they're qualified for Fibreop...and there's a house on Carmelo St. that has the service, or they just have a sign on their lawn saying FibreOp is here....

It was dark so and I was driving so I couldn't see how the lines were run, but that's a start to figure out where exactly these lines are and what to look for...

I think the service is out there....I think the trucks you're seeing are just other parts...also they have to take time to make sure things work properly...so some shakedown is probably required...
