Bell Aliant unleashes FibreOP services

Canadian telco Bell Aliant has started selling residential services under the 'FibreOP' brand, delivered over its new fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network.

The new FibreOP services, which include IPTV, high-speed Internet and telephony, are now available to customers in areas of Fredericton (the capital of New Brunswick province), and will be rolled out to the remainder of Fredericton and Saint John by the middle of next year. FibreOP Internet offers download speeds of up to 35 Mbps with 10 Mbps upload, while FibreOP TV offers high-definition content and PVR features, enabling users to watch one HD channel while recording another. Over 200 linear channels are offered on the service, including more than 90 music channels and 45 high-definition channels.

“Bell Aliant will be the first in Canada to cover an entire city with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology, and bring a 100% fibre optic network directly to customers’ homes,” said Heather Tulk, Senior Vice President of Customer Solutions at Bell Aliant. “These services will deliver the fastest Internet and video sharing available in New Brunswick, the ultimate high-definition TV experience, and the best customer service experience.”
