    Fiber optics until it gets to your street … Phone lines into the house. Wouldn’t trust that kind of content with that network.

  • No renting options yet either. Dropping 700$ isn’t an option. Not until some sort of feedback from someone saying it’s worth it.

  • Most likely need fibe to in house not just street to support 4K. If you can get OVER 50mbps download and upload then your good to go.

    Bah way too expensive! I bought a pvr from Rogers once, never again…. Maybe once there is a rental option.. Too bad I wanted to watch some 4k hockey..

    My brother-in-law just switched to Bell for all his services, and he really has a fiber optic cable running into his house. I had to check because I didn’t believe it!

    It would seem as though Bell Fibe is Fiber to the node (FTTN) while Bell Aliant is Fiber to the home (FTTH). I guess Bell Aliant was thinking ahead while rolling out their part of the fiber network.

    FTTN will work but the number of streams will be lower than FTTH. Bell is increasing the number of stream for all customers between May and July.

    Bell Aliant was definitely thinking ahead with the FTTH. They just need to start rolling out more content and of course, maintain the no cap policy.

    Also, Bell needs to pick up Rogers Sportsnet 4K channel.

    Makes me glad I was in the rollout territory for Bell Aliant’s FTTH.

  • Chris

    Agreed. I remember when Bell Aliant was rolling out the fiber on the telephone polls back in 2010

    My question is will watching 4K content on tv have a major impact on your download speeds for other services? Or do you think bell will ensure that you keep speeds of 50mbps if you are doing something else while watching 4K?
