4 Sep 2020

Canada’s largest rural fixed-wireless broadband provider Xplornet Communications has sealed a deal to acquire F6 Networks, a fibre provider based in New Brunswick. F6 Networks owns and operates a 1,600km fibre backbone network in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, providing services to enterprise customers and carriers in the region. The buyer’s press release states that the acquisition of F6 Networks will position Xplornet as a significant independent fibre provider in Atlantic Canada, with F6’s fibre-rich network supporting Xplornet’s current and future hybrid fibre wireless deployment plans in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Xplornet CEO Allison Lenehan said: ‘This acquisition will accelerate our plans in Atlantic Canada, to deliver unprecedented speeds and unlimited data plans at affordable prices for rural customers.’
