What is Fibre to the Business?

Fibre to the Business 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, digital TV, and phone services.

Fibre uses light instead of electricity to carry signals, and since light travels so quickly, Fibre to the Business can carry an enormous number of signals to and from your business at previously unheard of speeds. Like water and electricity, a fast connection is an essential utility. Without it, it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Why Fibre to the Business?

Process transactions, upload, share files, backup data and more, faster then ever before.

It’s hard to believe it has only been 12 years since the launch of Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter. Even iTunes was a fairly new concept! But now, according to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, “Canadians spend more time online than anybody else in the world.” We are a wired nation in a wired world with a wired future. Without a good internet connection, you’re going to be left behind.
