31 Mar 2022

Xplornet Communications, Canada’s largest rural-focused fixed broadband provider, has purchased the fibre internet infrastructure of the Municipality of the County of Annapolis in Nova Scotia. Xplornet will acquire, manage and expand the fibre network that the County began installing several years ago, which is capable of delivering up to 1Gbps service to residential customers and up to 10Gbps for businesses. A press release says that the deal will ensure that over 8,500 residents and businesses have access to reliable, high speed internet.

Xplornet CEO Allison Lenehan said: ‘We admire the County’s initiative in spearheading its own network and we look forward to building on that by expanding coverage and delivering high quality service to the people of the region.’ Alongside its fixed wireless, satellite and fledgling mobile broadband services, Xplornet has fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) projects underway in Nova Scotia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
