Installing Fiber For Internet connection?

Is it possible to get Telus to install fiber to my house so i can get fiber internet? How much would it cost, Thanks? Would i be eligible for faster speed such as 200MB/S?

Or should i just get Shaw $150?

Probably $20,000 or more. Plus a couple thousand dollars a month.

Troll?

Lol, things cost a lot of money. It's only 20k though ? I take baths in 20k LOL. Joking!! hahahaha, hopefully one day i will .

Guess i will stick with Telus 25MB >.. Good enough .... Plus no one really can even send data speeds of 3.0MB/S

Depends what you do. I maxed my 100M on usenet plenty of times. Nothing like getting a TV show in 30 seconds.

About a month ago Telus called me and offered me a deal on Telus TV. Now I don't have a TV in my house, but I have Internet and a land line with them. The representative offered to run fibre to my house, which is strange since the house was built in 1950. Would they actually come out and do that?

In some areas, telcos are deploying brownfield (i.e. not in a new, or greenfield housing development) fibre. More likely it is fibre to the node (FTTN) DSL though.

Just 200 metres away there are already three cabinets fed by fibre. Do they mean that?

Are they green or almond coloured? Green ones are typically fibre fed with copper distribution, and almond coloured ones are all fibre. Also, have you got aerial or underground distribution near your house?

If you've got aerial distribution, look for these up there. They're fibre terminals.

The cabinets are a pale green colour. And also I believe I have aerial distribution: there's a cable going from the DEMARC all the way to the telephone pole in the back lane behind the house.
I'll have to take a closer look for those when I get back from holidays. (I had to use Google Earth to actually look at them from so far away )

I have Fiber to my house. Telus installed it a few months ago when they upgraded me to Optik 25. It sucks because it's still only 2 up but it's better than DSL. No "modem" required.

Perhaps it depends on the city / neighbourhood that you are in. For reference, I'm in Calgary / Cranston.

Does the cabinet say 'FDH' on it ? If not, then you're simply on VDSL2 FTTN.
