Advantages of fibre optics

Improved Quality of Life

High-speed Internet has become a necessity for the multiple and simultaneous digital uses in homes and to improve comfort for all. Data sharing, the proliferation of connected objects and teleconferencing, are all technologies that require high-speed Internet in order to be used at the same time. Telework, online training, access to health records, as well as many leisure activities at home, such as television on demand, online games, downloading of music and streaming, are all aspects of our daily lives that can benefit from it.

Competitive Local Economy

The implementation of high-speed Internet is essential to boost the local economy, foster innovation and meet the growing needs of our businesses. Advanced digital infrastructure enables self-employed and salaried workers to work remotely, as well as provides access to co-working and instant data sharing. Businesses are becoming more competitive and developing new products and services.

Increased Regional Appeal

By transporting data over long distances without loss of signal, fibre optics can deliver identical bandwidth in rural areas as in large urban centres. Distance and remoteness are no longer barriers to development. Territorial integration is facilitated, new families and businesses can settle in the RCM, while cultural and tourist services can be enhanced.
