Re: [Internet] Is Bell Business Fibre Available?

said by thestealth:

Not quite the middle of no where.... Whats the point of spending money to let fibre sit there doing nothing for years on end? Surely any ROI (however small it may be) is better than none at all.

If Bell will not light it up, is there a possibility of a 3rd party leasing the line and lighting it up?

The cable may only have inter-CO traffic on it, and not be designated for use as distribution fibre. Bell will typically use SONET optical transport gear for inter-switch trunking, and Ethernet media converters for customer facing connections. In areas where they do PON, the have a PON terminal at the CO. The CO in question may not have such equipment.
