The County of Antigonish has announced there are close to 500 new addresses in the area now capable of connecting to Bell’s FIBE service.
In a release to the county from Bell, the company says they appear to be in the home stretch of phase 1 projects with most of the NS Power work now completed.
For Goshen, 281 civic addresses can now connect to the service, with 12 outstanding civic addresses in two remaining areas to be completed in February.
For the Doctor’s Brook/Malignant Cove project, 214 new civic addresses have access to the service. Bell is planning on completing the remaining areas this month and then picking up any partial areas in February.
The county stated the project was made possible through Develop Nova Scotia’s Internet for Nova Scotia Initiative.
