Oh, Happy Day it is official! Sandy and Ruth MacKay of Lyons Brook became the first homeowner to hook up to our MOPC fibre high-speed network. We will test our fibre network throughout the summer with several residents in the Lyons Brook area to ensure it works well.
Crews will continue stringing fibre on poles in the county so that when testing is complete, people can hook up to the service through an internet service provider. Our goal is to have a majority of the homes in rural Pictou County which are eligible for fibre be ready for service by the end of 2023.
We know this has been coming long, and a lot of planning has been done to get to this point, but we couldn't be more thrilled to have reached this milestone.
