Spotlight: Tbaytel fibre offers best-in-class quality

Tbaytel has brought fibre to more than 99.4 per cent of Thunder Bay, along with the communities of Dryden, Fort Frances, Kenora, Marathon and, most recently, Terrace Bay.

For more than a decade now, Tbaytel has been delivering fibre to homes and businesses in northern Ontario.

Tbaytel Fibre is the only 100 per cent true fibre connection direct to your home or business, unlike other competitors that use a shared node.  That means homes and businesses connected by Tbaytel Fibre can experience faster download speeds and far superior upload speeds. It is a best-in-class technology that offers virtually unlimited Internet bandwidth thanks to technology that relies on light rather than electricity to transmit data.

“Tbaytel Fibre allows residential and business customers to take full advantage of emerging technologies, and keep up with the connected world. Whether you are working from home, setting up a new security doorbell, a new sound system for the backyard, streaming 4k video or are working on a complex automation system, Tbaytel Fibre is the only true reliable connection that will give you the service and speeds you need,” said Tbaytel Communication Coordinator Jamie Smith.

First launched in 2013, Tbaytel has brought fibre to more than 99.4 per cent of Thunder Bay along with the communities of Dryden, Fort Frances, Kenora, Keewatin, Marathon and most recently Terrace Bay, transforming the way our communities live, work and play. For emerging enterprises or traditional businesses looking to modernize, the best way to manage operations, finance, communications and security is with a dedicated true fibre connection.

While the terrain in northern Ontario is vast and often isolated, creating this state-of-the-art fibre network is made possible through strong strategic direction and the belief that what’s good for northern Ontario is good for Tbaytel. It also takes the bold vision of regional organizations and municipalities who have partnered with Tbaytel to access funding from senior levels of government to increase connectivity for their communities. Recently, the Lakehead Regional Municipal Coalition and Northwestern Ontario Innovation Centre partnered with Tbaytel to access more than $35.7 million in funding from the provincial and federal governments to bring Tbaytel Fibre to 2,697 addresses throughout rural Thunder Bay by 2025. Once complete, areas of the Municipality of Oliver Paipoonge, Township of Conmee, Township of O’Connor, Township of Gillies, Municipality of Neebing and Municipality of Shuniah will have access to Tbaytel Fibre thanks to more than 768 kilometres of new fibre cable over an area of 860 square kilometres.


While the demands of new technology change constantly, Tbaytel’s reliable 100 per cent true fibre connection will be there for customers and all of northern Ontario in the years ahead. See what’s possible with Tbaytel Fibre for your home or business by visiting today.
