Re: Why is Rogers digging up my area?

Theres several possibilities:

* More fiber for further expansion/node split
* May be planning on another FTTH trial area around you, which would require more fiber being laid
* They were already planning on doing a node split, but decided to lay dark fiber while they were already in the area and had to do work there anyways. Save time & costs down the line since they were already laying some.

Either that, or Cogeco's using "Under Contract to Rogers" companies to expand Cogeco Data Services..

Rogers & Cogeco seems to share these companies because last fall Rogers was using "Under Contract to Cogeco" companies for their upgrades throughout North York to complete upgrades to be able to kill off throttling on time. The trucks should usually say what company they're under contract to.
