New Fibre Installation

New Fibre Installation 

Bell Canada plans to install underground fiber optic cabling, for Internet purposes, to all residential homes in the regions of Arnprior, Constance Bay, Carp. The project involves the installation of approximately 2.63 km of underground and aerial fiber optic cable on Kerwin.

The cable will be buried by directional drilling, trenching, or using existing conduits, or a combination of these methods in existing roadway alignments, but will be suspended on support structures to connect to residential homes and businesses.
