BISHOP'S FALLS, NL, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Bell Aliant Inc. (TSX: BA) is
expanding its FibreOP network in Newfoundland. This month, 1,650 customers in Bishop's Falls
will have access to the future-proof FibreOP network.
The $1-million investment builds on Bell Aliant's existing FibreOP
footprint in Newfoundland, which includes St. John's, Mount Pearl,
Paradise, Grand Falls-Windsor, Conception Bay South, Corner Brook, and
"We are thrilled to bring our state-of-the-art FibreOP network to Bishop's Falls," said Andre LeBlanc, VP Residential Markets,
Bell Aliant. "Just like their neighbours in Grand Falls-Windsor,

Bell Aliant's unstoppable fibre-to-the-home network continues to set the
pace in Atlantic Canada. More than 100,000 customers already enjoy the
awesome capabilities and features of FibreOP: popular social TV apps like Facebook, Twitter and The Weather Network,
unlimited downloads and uploads with no data caps, and Wi-Fi signal
strength to make it all possible.
The advantage of a fibre-to-the-home network is how it continues to
expand to meet the growing communications needs of Canadian households.
File sharing, uploading and video streaming have become commonplace,
