This is a long overdue update that we are excited to broadcast. We have had some bumpy roads along the way with being able to bring fast and reliable internet service to the rural community of Beckwith. Circumstances out of our control caused several setbacks that unfortunately made us miss our initial timelines. We are […]
The first fibre pulls along Dwyer Hill and inside of CCV took place this week! Here are a few photos of the work and the results… Yes, it’s actually happening!
For the past 6 months, the Community Fibre crew has been busy working on the CCV project along Dwyer Hill and inside the Country Club Village subdivision. This project is by far the most complicated undertaking we could have tackled, with plenty of hard lessons learned in the process. Much of the complexity arose from […]
New truck! Just last week we picked up a new F550 with an Altec boom+bucket truck which we can use to install fibre cables much faster: It sounds a little scary, but can be a line-worker in the bucket while the truck is driven (slowly!) along – while attaching fibre and getting more fibre to […]
Winter sure isn’t letting up, but we’re not stopping either! In this update you can see the various stages of installing rock bolts/anchors for guying the “messenger stand” that the fibre cables are attached to.

First and foremost, a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! Since the kickoff of the Beckwith 9th Line North project at the beginning of November, the crew at Community Fibre has been very busy with the many details required to make the project happen. Survey / Engineering work is currently in […]

Thanks to everyone for sending in their service agreements indicating strong support for fibre deployment in and around Ashton and the 9th Line Beckwith! Over the course of the next few days we will […]
It’s been great meeting everyone in the community over the past few weeks, especially the kind offers of water and reprieve from the late summer’s heat! What a nice change from July, and just in time for Thanksgiving, more seasonal (but still pleasant) weather is upon us. While going door-to-door, we’ve been listening to your […]
After ELEVEN months of tedious work, today the Ottawa City Council approved Community Fibre Company’s Municipal Access Agreement. With this we can now commence various in-Ottawa projects we’ve been waiting to move forward with too! We can’t offer enough thanks to Councillors Leiper and Moffatt for helping make this happen.
