Reliable high-speed fibre internet service is now available to more than 1,250 properties in Central and North Queens County.

During the spring and summer, Bell Canada crews and their contractors have worked to install internet cables on poles in areas of North and Central Queens County that haven’t had internet or had substandard internet speeds. Bell Aliant is now ready to connect the service to homes.

“Today is the day we have been waiting to see for a long time,” said Region of Queens Municipality Mayor David Dagley in a press release on Sept. 3. “As of today, 1,273 new premises in North and Central Queens now have access to high-speed internet with another 74 premises expected in the coming weeks for a total of 1,347 premises, which is more than originally planned for in Phase 1.”

Internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps are now available to 411 premises in parts of Caledonia, West Caledonia, Westfield, and Harmony Mills in North Queens and 936 premises in parts of Labelle and Buckfield in Central Queens.

Another 74 premises in Central Queens are expected to be available for connection once provincial permits to run cables across waterways are approved.

Residents in the Phase 1 communities interested in being connected to fibre internet service can contact Bell Aliant at 1-844-305-4228, visit the Bell Aliant store in the Bridgewater Mall, or visit www.bellaliant.ca, to learn more about the service and to schedule an appointment for installation and connection.

The first phase of the “Fibre to the Home Footprint Expansion” was approved this past February with funding through the Internet for Nova Scotia Initiative, a program of Develop Nova Scotia and the province.

The Region of Queens Municipality contributed $435,500 to phase one. Develop Nova Scotia gave $487,000 through the Nova Scotia Internet Funding Trust for Nova Scotia Initiative, and Bell Canada funded the balance of the $1.9-million project.

In 2019, the Region of Queens Municipality also contributed $64,500 towards installing fibre backbone along Highway 210 in Central Queens and Highway 8 in North Queens.

“Getting to this point has been a long journey, and Council of Region of Queens Municipality is grateful to have collaborated with Develop Nova Scotia, province of Nova Scotia, and Bell Canada to bring fibre internet to our underserviced residents in North and Central Queens,” said Dagley.
