fibre-to-the-business network in Port Perry, Ontario. This new network enables local business and residential customers to receive faster Internet, better quality telephone, and more reliable service than has currently been available from other providers in the area. Our current Internet speeds are 25Mb up and down, but the equipment is capable of bringing 1000Mb to each customer when the time comes. In addition to greater speeds, the equipment also enables greater reach. The system can reach out up to 30 Km, with the same speeds available to even the furthest customer away. The plan is to eventually build out the network to reach more distant residents of our town, that are currently dealing
with either dial-up, or poor quality wireless service.
Because we are building our network one customer at a time, it simply
isn't practical to bring a contractor in for each new turn-up. Not only
would the costs be prohibitive, the scheduling issues would make it
difficult to turn customers up quickly, with installation times that are
convenient for them. Time To Lend helped us arrange equipment
leases that allowed us to obtain the splicing equipment we need to do
all the work in-house. Not only has this greatly reduced the cost of
turning up new customers, but it has also given us a lot of flexibility
as to how we build and maintain the network. Leasing was the right
solution, and it has allowed us to start small and continue to grow.
