I live in uptown New Westminster and was wondering why there is no fibre. For some reason the Queensborough part has it but not us. Why is that. This is not very convenient and it is very annoying that they got it and not us.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
The Neighborhood is inhabited by Telus customers who have no insight to Telus’ plans of fibre expansion.
There are, however numerous reasons, including currently available speeds to your neighborhood, ease of installation, and priority to install in other areas, come to mind.

@Mehar Overhead wiring is the easiest to run fiber. Underground wiring along the street is (normally now )installed in pipe. But from a junction boxs to the houses a lot was direct buried because the sub developer wanted the cheapest way and civic govt didn't care or didn't inspect the installation. The odds of getting fibre are remote unless complete failure of cable and tel wires. I worked power over and underground +30 years and did not agree with some of the stuff i was told to do. It has come back to haunt them. Cable and tel installations in areas were all direct in ground and now failing every day. Polecat
@Mehar If your in a sub somewhere around queens park A very hard situation is it all in pipe or half buried direct. To update the system (adding pipe) very costly cutting roadways driveways repaving etc. This is quite an older sub area i think (google earth) The cost to telus very high returning all landscaping back to normal make city happy. IF Telus shaw if in the area and hydro are in pipe No direct burial then maybe ok. you will have talk to telus directly. Maybe if you see a telus truck working the area stop and chat him up.Quick answer maybe. If you have kiosks at different corners etc you are UG Alll $$$$$$$$ hope this helps Polecat
