Re: What if it happened here?

Bell Aliant realized that ages ago as the salt water and air on the east coast corrodes copper right down to the core. They've moved to fiber from copper. One of the very few companies to offer true fiber optic connections at least for now with no caps.

There's a lot of direct fibre to the home that's been deployed by cable companies in Ontario, it's just that most people don't know it because it's converted to coax inside the home and uses all the exact same equipment and delivers the same service as regular coax does. It's only just now that Rogers alone are starting to differentiate their fibre offerings.

Yeah......but can you get a Teksavvy or Electronic Box (just picking names out of the air) all fiber FTTP connection in Sydney, Nova Scotia if you don't want to deal with Bell Aliant?
