I've been thinking about hopping on to Telus. however unless I can get fiber at actual fiber speeds (giving it a purpose) there's no point so my first question is:
Can I get 950/250 in Edmonton? Anything failing to exceed 300 down makes fiber pointless as a service offering.
And if can;
What can I expect for an installation to an apartment? Fiber is in my area, but not at my building as far as I know. Will a crew need to dig a trench or do crazy stuff that requires land-lord concent, like access to a utility room or something? How much of a challenge is it to get an apartment connected to fiber from the perspective of a tenant?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As a follow up: The tenant will have no ability to get the apartment building connected to fiber. Only the building owner can do that and they'd have to contact Telus directly.
Which brings me to another pet peeve: being charged monthly fee increases for technology upgrades (i.e. fibre optics everywhere except my building and similar apartment style condos or apartments) which will NEVER be made available to me.
Some building owners future proof their buildings some don’t for cost.
And some refuse to allow upgrades, no matter. :-(
