What is FTTN?
Our higher speed DSL packages are delivered through 'fibre to the node' (FTTN) which connects your home closer to the fibre network providing a more consistent and reliable internet connection versus traditional basic DSL. FTTN is not available in all areas so please ensure you qualify your full address for the most accurate availability and estimated speed of the connection at your home.
How does cable internet compare to 'hybrid fibre'?
They are identical as 'hybrid fibre-coaxial' is simply the name of the cable internet technology. Hybrid describes the configuration of the bringing fibre to your neighbourhood and using coaxial cable to connect your home. Rather than trying to make it sound like something it isn't, we've kept the name simple and honest.
Don't have a phone line?
Our cable and FTTN internet services do not require an active local phone line which is perfect if you primarily use your cell phone.
Don't already own a modem?
No problem, if you do not already own a compatible high-speed modem then you can rent one with most of our packages for only $5/month or why not consider buying one from us and save yourself the ongoing rental fees? Our modems come complete with all the required cables, a filter where applicable, and 1-year warranty.
