There has been a lot of activity:
- Deployment of the main fibre cable by subcontractor Telecon on Dunany road and branches. Wednesday, they were in front of my property at 1150, coming from Curran road and continuing on to Lachute.
- Pre-installation of fibre links from the road to the pole closest to the homes of those who have preregistered with Fibre Argenteuil.
Fibre Argenteuil has received subscriptions for about 75 Dunany residences so far. There are about 205 residences in Dunany.
The purpose of this post is to update you on the project and strongly encourage you to subscribe as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Doing it this fall when Fibre Argenteuil is in the Dunany area will ensure that you get access of real high speed internet – up to 100 Mbits – this fall.
The plan is for all subscribers to be connected by mid-November.
As I have written before, Fibre Argenteuil is a non profit organization based in Lachute and created by the MRC d’Argenteuil. who actually owns the fibre. It thus belongs to all of the residents of Argenteuil. Its board of directors is chaired by Benoit St-Jacques, a long time Black lake residents. But the best reason to subscribe is that it offers a great deal with state of the art technology – up to 100Mbits – for internet, television and telephony at a very competitive price.
For cottagers, Fibre Argenteuil offers a Seasonal Service that will allow an owner to suspend all of its services for a fixed period of time.
Finally, some of you might have some questions about installation in your house, especially those who have underground wiring. I had some last week and contacted Fibre Argenteuil for answers. Not only did they give me good information, the called me back the next day to tell me that they would prepare an installation guide for residents that should be available very soon.
Needless to say, I will let you know how to access it as soon as it is available.
