FIBRE OPTICS INVESTMENT IN BLYTH

North Huron   -  The next generation of technology is coming soon to Blyth.  Tuckersmith Communications Cooperative Ltd. (TCC), in conjunction with the Township of North Huron, is working on increasing the fibre capacity to Blyth.   This will allow for improved bandwidth offerings to residential customers and it will make fibre optic services available to Blyth businesses and municipal facilities.   Fibre has the highest bandwidth capacity available for both sending and receiving data and this occurs almost instantly.

TCC and North Huron have entered into an agreement to allow TCC to install fibre optic cable and equipment at the Emergency Services Training Centre (ESTC) in Blyth to serve as TCC’s hub so that it can expand its telecommunications infrastructure to Blyth and the surrounding area.  “This investment will provide Blyth with access to the most technologically advanced infrastructures in the area,” said Rob Van Aaken, General Manager, Tuckersmith Communications Cooperative Ltd. 

“Our residents and businesses depend on fast and reliable telecommunications to share information and stay connected,” said North Huron Reeve Neil Vincent.  “TCC’s investment in Blyth to improve connectivity will encourage other partnerships, retain and attract residents, and generate investment and new economic opportunities.”

Those looking for more information on TCC’s services and these advancements can contact the business office at 519-606-2211.  TCC has been offering communications services throughout the area for over 100 years.   In operation since 1909, TCC has evolved from a small, local independent telephone company to one of the leading full-service communications firms in Huron County.   TCC is proud to invest in local communities – giving residents and businesses one of the most advanced communications infrastructures in Canada.
