Bruce Telecom Brings High Speed Fibre to Port Elgin, Tiverton & Paisley


May 24, 2024

Everything from video calls to streaming your favourite entertainment is faster and easier in some areas of Bruce County now that Bruce Telecom has completed its most significant fibre optic cable installation in several years.

The project completion, which started in 2023, means more than 1,500 homes in Port Elgin, Paisley and Tiverton are already enjoying, or are ready for connection to Fibre to the Home, promising considerably faster Internet including whole home Wi-Fi, digital TV, and home phone services.

“This is an exciting milestone for us. All homes in Tiverton and Paisley are fibre-ready, with 380 homes in Port Elgin also ready. Our staff team and contractors have worked diligently over the past year to get this in the ground so customers can start to access the improved service,” said Ray Lahoud, CEO of Bruce Telecom.

He says that property owners can expect to hear from Bruce Telecom in the next few weeks with an opportunity to get on the fibre service, and new bundled service offerings promise solid savings in addition to faster and more reliable service. Customers are also welcome to call the company at 1-866-517-2000 Monday to Saturday or visit a store location in Port Elgin or Kincardine.

Fibre to the Home is considered the most advanced technology to provide the best internet connection throughout your home, all through a single strand of glass at the speed of light. Unlike traditional copper cables, fibre cables use light instead of electricity to transmit data, making them faster, stronger, and more reliable.

With a fibre connection, data literally moves at the speed of light. Fibre is also less impacted by environmental issues, such as water or extreme temperatures, making it more durable to withstand Canadian winters and summers, along with environmental factors that would otherwise cause deterioration over time.

Bruce Telecom is committed to continue expanding its fibre network across the serving territories in the coming years.
