Bell Canada Gigabit Fibe Service


With Aecon’s help, Bell has been deploying gigabit fibe service quickly and efficiently, while revolutionizing the way that internet access is delivered to customers' homes. Aecon is no stranger to working with Bell Canada. The two companies have a long-standing partnership that was solidified even further through a fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) program. The FTTN project called on Aecon to install and connect fibre-optic cables into numerous neighbourhoods across Ontario. Aecon has now taken this a step further by extending Bell fibre network installation directly to the homes of individual subscribers through Bell’s fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) program.

When Aecon first joined forces with Bell several decades ago, telecommunications services were delivered via a copper network. Over time, that technology was updated with the faster hybrid fibre optic network known as FTTN, which essentially involved laying fibre over the copper network to deliver faster internet access to neighbourhoods.

As time progressed, so did the technology. Bell, knowing its neighbourhood node set-up wasn’t going to provide enough bandwidth for consumers' ever-growing internet and entertainment demands, was intent on bringing the fibre network even closer to its customers.
