Bell Aliant is investing $20 million to bring its fibre-to-the home (FTTH) network to North Bay and Timmins.

The company will invest $13 million to offer its future-proof network to 20,000 North Bay premises, and $7 million to 15,000 premises in Timmins.

“We are thrilled to continue our expansion in Ontario by bringing this powerful technology to North Bay,” said Karen Sheriff, president and CEO of Bell Aliant, in a statement.

“(Timmins) is our largest NorthernTel market and the extensive aerial infrastructure in Timmins makes it ideal for fibre-to-the home.”

Timmins is part of Bell Aliant's operating territory but is served under the NorthernTel brand.

As Internet use continues to evolve, more people are using multiple connected devices at the same time. With 100 per cent fibre straight to the home, FibreOP allows everyone in the home to do what they want to do faster, and at the same time. FibreOP Internet offers download speeds of up to 250 Mbps, and upload speeds as high as 30 Mbps.

Bell Aliant's FibreOP network is already available to customers in Greater Sudbury and Sault Ste.Marie.
