Hello Kristofer, 

We are expanding FiON into new communities right now and updating networks that need new equipment. Information about our fibre network can be found here

Thanks Tennille, the last community updated was 2014 and it doesn't list any details about future growth in 2016. Are there any plans for Ste. Agathe specifically, or are those not in the forecast right now?

You're welcome. :) They are growing the fion network where new developments are popping up. Are you guys having an issue with your speeds?

Not with the advertised speeds. Coming from the city getting 60 MB/s down and moving to ~7 MB/s down in Ste. Agathe is just a big change. I was hoping to hear there were plans to upgrade Ste. Agathe so that Fion speeds would be available in the near future, or to hear there are no plans for Ste. Agathe and I can stop checking on updates...

Ah, yes. That would be quite the adjustment. I can understand where you are coming from. You can probably pause your update check ins for a while. There are no current plans for upgrades involving fion at this time. We are only working on areas that need new service equipment. I hope that helps answer your questions. :)
