Bell Aliant continues to bring leading edge technology to New Brunswick
Introducing FibreOP Internet 170/30 with unprecedented speed and bandwidth capability
Saint John, NB – Bell Aliant continues to offer the best Internet with fastest upload and download speeds available with the introduction of FibreOP Internet 170/30.
FibreOP is the only 100 per cent fibre-optic network straight to a customer’s home, delivering the best Internet with the fastest upload and download speeds available and crystal clear TV.
- FibreOP Internet offers choices in speeds, including exceptionally fast 170 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload service. These speeds enable customers to not only download music or movies, and share video or photos faster than ever before, but also accommodate the growing need for multiple users sharing bandwidth within the home. Increasing the capacity of upload speeds in addition to download is important to ensure the fastest two-way and overall Internet experience.
- FibreOP TV offers a 100 per cent digital TV service including High Definition television, available on all TVs, and watch and record PVR. Customers can enjoy unmatched digital picture and sound quality on over 200 channels, 60 HD channels and over 98 music channels.
“We have immense pride in the history of innovation in this province, developing the best available network and services on behalf of our customers” said Kelly Duplisea, VP FibreOP
and TV, Bell Aliant. “The demand for bandwidth is always growing, and delivering not only the speed but the capacity direct to each customer’s home means that no matter what your communication and entertainment needs are, the FibreOP
network is future-ready as more services and applications are introduced.”
services and bundles are currently available to customers in the serving areas of greater Fredericton, greater Saint John and greater Moncton.
Earlier this year, Bell Aliant announced an additional $350 million dollar investment to be made in 2011 and 2012, which will bring the total investment in FibreOP
to almost a half billion dollars, expanding its future-ready technology to more than 600,000 homes and businesses.
