Wightman is actively connecting your neighbours to our powerful fibre network, an advanced communications technology for internet, TV, and phone. This advanced technology allows you to pick the right internet speed for your needs with up to 1 Gig available even at peak times when all your neighbours are online.

Tim recently made the switch to Wightman Fibre to the Home and here is one of the reasons why “I think the biggest thing is that it’s a more local company. We were looking to improve our internet speeds and we had heard good things about Wightman fibre…” Watch his full testimonial here. 

We need your permission to bring fibre to your property; sign up today so, you don’t get missed. To make arrangements for your location to be connected sign you up in-store or reach us by email, phone, or online.

Construction of Wightman Fibre to the Home (FTTH) may be completed, but our job is far from over. We are now connecting homes and business to this new fibre technology. If you haven’t signed up yet because you have questions about FTTH, here are a few frequently asked questions to help you in making the switch:

Q. What is Fibre to the Home?
A. Fibre to the Home uses glass fibre to carry communications signals. It replaces existing copper infrastructure, such as telephone wires and TV cable, with a faster, more reliable method of delivering internet, TV, and phone services.

Q. Why is fibre better than copper lines, or wireless service?
A. It can manage significantly faster internet speeds over greater distances, and it is not subject to transmission interference like copper, coaxial cable, and wireless. Fibre optics offers more transmission security, requires less maintenance, and has a significantly longer lifespan than other technologies.

Q. Is there any cost to me for Fibre to the Home installation?
A. No. Fibre to the Home installation is free if you subscribe to our service during the initial construction period.

Q. How do I know if my address will get fibre?
A. Stop in and see us, give us a call, or send an email and we can confirm for you.

We had someone from Arthur ask a great question last week, “Do you have to complete all construction before you can do customer connections or is that done as you go?"

Last week, the question was asked, “What are all the conduits for in the ground, are they all for Wightman Fibre?” What a great question!
Answer: The smaller conduits are for the individual fibres that will go to each home. The larger conduits are for various fibre lines that each contain hundreds of fibres necessary to make the connections to each home. Our plans include anticipation that every home and business will be connected to Wightman Fibre, and we also have capacity for growth beyond what is necessary today. The different colours of the conduits help the installation crews easily identify what goes where.
