Bell Aliant, with the support of the Nova Scotia government, has announced a $55 million investment to expand FibreOP, its fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network, to approximately 160,000 homes and businesses in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The FTTH network for Nova Scotia was introduced last spring with Bell Aliant’s $15 million investment to launch  services first in Sydney. The latest announcement brings the total FTTH investment in Nova Scotia to over $70 million to serve approximately 190,000 homes and businesses.

The provincial government contributed $2 million to the project to help ensure economic development opportunities for Nova Scotia with leading edge technology infrastructure.

“To ensure Nova Scotia’s economy continues to grow, the province needs to remain competitive in the global economy,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “That means making sure we have the right telecommunications infrastructure in place, right across the province.”
