Rogers expanding 1.5Gbps FTTH in Ottawa, surrounding locations

18 Oct 2021

Canadian fixed and mobile network operator Rogers Communications reported that it is investing over CAD188 million (USD152 million) to extend 1.5Gbps fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services to more than 24,000 additional homes and businesses in Ottawa and nearby eastern Ontario communities including Clarence-Rockland, North Grenville and Carleton Place. TeleGeography notes that whilst most of Rogers’ fixed broadband network is based on HFC cable DOCSIS 3.1 technology with fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) architecture supporting upcoming DOCSIS 4.0 evolution, the operator is also expanding GPON-based FTTH in chosen ‘strategic areas’ supporting symmetrical down/upstream speeds up to 10Gbps per node ‘in select neighbourhoods’.
