Rogers to launch New Brunswick home phone service

9 Feb 2006

Rogers Cable plans to launch local telephony services over its cable network in New Brunswick by July this year, adding to its existing portfolio of cable TV and internet services in the province. It already provides a home phone service to customers in Ontario, which it rolled out last summer in competition with Bell Canada. New Brunswick’s residential fixed line users have a choice of long distance operators and VoIP providers, but their phone lines are currently all provided by Aliant. Rogers is planning to focus its initial rollout on the region’s three largest metropolitan areas.
