Standard Broadband is expanding our FTTH network in The Town of Erin.


Standard Broadband’s FTTH network expansion in the Town will begin in November 2020 and take about 24 months to complete. The MAP below outlines our current active service area (in green) and our current construction area (in yellow) and our planned 2021/2022 build (in blue). Over the coming months as service is active areas will be marked as green on the MAP.

Nov 3, 2021 – Update

After many many months and delays we have finally obtained the locates required to begin construction in a number of the project areas. Our construction team has begun work in the Ospringe area and we will be starting in other portions of the town in the coming week or two. Our team and contractors are committed and will work throughout the winter as best we can to catch up.

More updated to follow shortly.

We want to thank everyone for their assistance as well as the staff at the Town of Erin for all of their help over the last few months to get thing taken care of with the locate delays we faced.

May 6, 2021 – Update

Just a quick update today, we have crews in place and ready to start however we are still waiting on Bell Canada’s contractor Promark Telcon to provide us the locates for Bell Canada’s underground infrastructure. As soon as we receive those will begin construction. Locates are required to be provided under Ontario 1 Call regulation in 5 business days, the locates we are waiting on are approaching 30 days overdue.  We have taken steps to escalate the request and we hope that will shortly be provided with the locate paperwork and be able to start construction.

More details to come.

Nov 12, 2020 – Update

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.

Construction will begin on Trafalgar Rd N at Turner Ct and proceed North to Side Road 9 starting as soon as our locates are received.
