Frequently Asked Questions for Fibre Internet

What is fibre internet?

Fibre service involves a line from a utility pole to a box on your home's exterior, with another box inside. This setup is free for now. Then, your chosen internet provider will give you the necessary equipment for internet access.

How fast is it?

Unlike wireless, fibre gives consistent speeds of up to 1 Gb without any interference from weather or landscapes.

What does it cost?

The MOPC isn't directly selling high-speed fibre service to residents. Instead, it's leasing its fibre and equipment to internet service providers like TNC Wireless, North Nova Cable, and NCS. These providers will offer you internet and bill you for it. Their prices range from $34.99 to $100 per month, depending on the package you choose.
