Standard Broadband is expanding our FTTH network in the Ballinafad / Erin Area.


Standard Broadband’s FTTH network expansion continues. The MAP below outlines our current active service area (in green) and our planned service area (in yellow). Over the coming months as service is active areas will be marked as green on the MAP.

Dec 31, 2020 – Update

Our crews have been working hard along Trafalgar Road and even with the early winter weather we have made good progress.  Today we have completed our initial backbone to Side Road 5 and starting on Jan 4, 2021 we will be continuing to Side Road 9 as well as starting work along Side Road 5.  Our fibre crew will be installing the fibre optic cable in our newly installed ducts and in about two weeks time homes along Trafalgar Rd will be able to schedule installations.  Our website will be updated allowing you to sign up online at that time.

We wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year!

Nov 12, 2020 – Update

It appears due to a technical glitch in our website software the last update in Oct was not actually made live on our site we do apologize for that.

Permits have been issued for our expansion and construction will commence in the coming week or two.  Currently we are waiting on our construction locates. These are required by law in Ontario before any work can begin. Locates are used to show our team where existing underground infrastructure exits to ensure we do not damage it during construction and in the case of GAS or Hydro it is for the safety of our team that they know where those lines and pipes are located.

September 29, 2020 – Update

Our initial MC package has been completed and was submitted to Wellington County late last week. We expect to have that approved in the next week or two. Upon approval our team will contact Ontario One Call to request locates for the area where we will be working. You will start to see flags and paint markings on the ground. These markings show our construction team where other underground infrastructure is located and are required before we can begin our construction work.

Below is a list by street showing the order of where we will be working. Upon receiving approvals from the county and town we will update the list with tentative dates.

Trafalgar Rd from Turner Ct to Side Road 9 – This is our main backbone construction and must be completed first
Copeland Path
Side Road 5 from Trafalgar to 8th Line
Clark Path and 8th Line going North
Side Road 5 from Trafalgar to Alan Path
Alan Path
Wellington Rd 42 from our existing infrastructure to 9th Line
9th Line south to Side Road 5

Construction will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.
