ACW FTTN Ultra Broadband Initiative and the ACW Wireless Ultra Boadband Initiative
• UPDATE November 23rd, 2017:
The ACW FTTN ULTRA BROADBAND INITIATIVE (green) has begun with work required to power the Fibre Nodes at each of the Beaches. This project is designed to service an area of 450 underserved homes along the Lake Huron Shoreline between Amberley and Port Albert, Ontario. Loop lengths will be reduced to between .8km and 3 km allowing speeds that will meet and in most cases far exceed the funding guidelines of 5/1 Mbps.

The portion of the ACW WIRELESS ULTRA BROADBAND INITIATIVE (blue) is well under way. HuronTel has added approximately 12 kilometres of access fibre between its core network and a new 200’ tower that will replace an existing tower at Zion Road. This will allow better reach and improved bandwidth with many of our existing customers having access to speed up to 10 Mbps.
While the Municipality constructed new water lines in Whitechurch, HuronTel has built fibre to the homes in the Hamlet. Whitechurch residents will be served with Fibre to the Home as part of this construction. Construction should be completed in August of 2017. (blue)
Updates will be posted as construction progresses over the next few months.
