Chapleau Gets FTTH

Chapleau has become the envy of broadband (high speed Internet) users across the Algoma District when it became the first community in the District to receive Fibre-to-the-Home or FTTH infrastructure. Vianet announced availability of the service on 02 May 12. Details can be found on the Vianet website.

Chapleau is now a very competitive environment with three different vendors  - Bell, Tbaytel, and  Vianet, -  providing service using three different technologies - DSL (wireline), 3G/4G HSPA (wireless) and FTTH (cable).

  1. That's a lot of money to invest in a town off the beaten track whose future isn't all that bright.

    Another troubling fact is the 25% decrease in Chapleau's population since 2001.
