Urban expands fibre network in Vancouver

Briefs | 04/20/2007 12:44 pm EDT

Urban Communications Inc. has entered into a long-term duct access agreement with the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and has completed a 22-kilometre extension of its fibre optic network Cassiar Street in Vancouver to 160th Street in Surrey. Along the network there are 36 breakout points that provide access to the populated sectors of Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam and New Westminster, allowing for further network expansion into those communities. This will not only save on capital costs in the future, but will also facilitate the addition of new customers in a more timely manner. Urban has already started to roll out a fibre-based broadband Internet and VoIP services to multi-tenant buildings and plans to add video on demand and IPTV services later this year.
