Re: Which companies can do FTTH in Sountern Ontario ?

said by MJB:

the bell/rogers/cogeco/telus/shaw/videotron monopoly won't let you... just like the crtc write's a rule that tpia can't lay their own infrastrucuture... the bigger picture is that the banks fund the telecoms and the plan is to upgrade to ftth when the nsa/spy grid is complete..

Where'd you buy your tin foil hat?

The CRTC has no say in whether someone lays their own fiber or not. Any company can do it, but no one has for the simple fact that it's cost prohibitive for anyone to do so. Only the companies that already have infrastructure in place are likely to ever put FTTH in place as they're eventually forced to replace their current systems due to age.

It can be DECADES before we see a majority of households in Canada set up for FTTH.

Fixed it for you.

There's already lots of FTTH in Canada - just not in Southern Ontario. Whether or not it is because we're the only location where the majority of telephone wiring is underground - even in rural areas - is beyond me. Needless to say, even today you'll find a lot of it in Atlantic Canada, Quebec and the Prairies with a whole bunch going into Northern Ontario right now too as I type this.

Hence my statement of "majority of Canada" and not "Canada" in general.

Your definition and everyone elses definition of lots are not the same thing.

When one's initial definition of "Canada" extends beyond just Toronto and Southern Ontario, it tends to.

That's the whole point. What has been rolled out is in a small few cities and the rest has a little sprinkling here and there. In the bigger picture it is very little.

Halifax, Regina, Saskatoon and Quebec City aren't small cities - that is, at least not to people who live outside the Centre of the Universe, anyway. Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, Moncton, Fredericton, Charlottetown and Saint John are also regional centres regardless of their population and would typically not be regarded as "small"

What were you saying about the "big picture" again?

How about the fact that Bell Aliant has penetration to over 650,000 households for FTTH in the Maritimes and is truly uncapped and provides free speed upgrades on existing ftth packages.

Is that 650,000 homes passed, or homes serviced?
