FTTH in Canada

NanoFibreThe CRTC has granted interim approval to NanoFibre Inc. for its Basic Listing Interchange File Agreement, which calls to mind the existence of smaller fibre to the home (FTTH) / fibre to the premises (FTTP) service providers across the country.

NanoFibre operates in the Columbia Valley in BC and it is one of many smaller ISPs that demonstrates that there are facilities-based options beyond the incumbent telephone companies and cable companies.

The fact that NanoFibre can raise capital, build, operate and serve smaller communities begs a number of questions.
The Village of Radium Hot Springs, Columbia Ridge and Spirit’s Reach have fibre running past the front door of over 1,500 residences and businesses and more buildings are being connected every day. We have placed fibre in the ground within Pedley Heights, Copper Point and a new subdivision in Fairmont Hot Springs.
How many other FTTH companies are operating under the radar screen in Canada?

So, Bell Aliant is operating FTTH in cities in New Brunswick and NanoFibre among a number of others operating in BC. FTTH in different types of markets, from coast to coast.

How many FTTH / FTTP connections will be listed in next year's Communications Monitoring Report?
