About Fibrehoods


WHAT'S AFIBREHOOD?


A fibrehood includes about 200-1,500 households and businesses that are connected directly to a fibre optic communications cable.  This technology is generally referred to as fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) or fibre-to-the-business (FTTB).  Metro Loop determines fibrehood boundaries based on a number of factors. We will work with the local governments and community leaders to learn about pre-existing neighbourhoods or communities. Then, we look at these communities and determine very clear boundaries at their edges like streets, highways, and rivers.


WHAT ISFIBRE-TO-THE-HOME/BUSINESS?


Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) is a revolutionary high-speed fibre optic Internet, phone, and TV connection.  With FTTH/FTTB each individual home and business is directly connected to the Metro Loop fibre optic cable infrastructure.  Each premise is connected by a separate fibre optic cable strand.


WHAT MAKES AFIBREHOOD BETTER?


Fibrehoods are better than traditional cable and telephone company offerings that use outdated copper technology to deliver today’s media-rich Internet sites, high-definition over-the-top video streaming services, and high-definition television and the upcoming 4K television services. 

MetroLoop fibrehoods are built on MetroLoop owned cables that are completely independent of existing cable and telephone company infrastructure.


HOW DO I GET AFIBREHOOD IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD?


Metro Loop builds Fibrehoods by community demand—Fibrehoods that meet our pre-registration goal will get serviced first. 

The build process typically starts with a pre-registration period to allow residents and businesses to express interest in bringing a Metro Loop Fibrehood to their neighbourhoods.  Each Fibrehood will need to reach it’s goal in order to qualify. The next step for qualifying Fibrehoods is to select their plan.  Once construction has begun in your Fibrehood, you will be contacted to schedule installation. Last step — sit back and enjoy your new Metro Loop service!
