Xplore announced the successful completion of its major fibre Internet project in Quebec.

As the latest testament to the company's commitment to enhancing rural living, the project has enabled more than 33,000 rural homes and businesses in the province to connect to fibre-to-the-premises Internet with speeds up to one gigabit.

Supported in part by Opération Haute Vitesse, Xplore invested over $132 million to deploy 2,700 kilometres of fibre-optic infrastructure to connect homes and businesses across the underserved MRCs of Pontiac, Les Sources, La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, La Tuque, Papineau and parts of Haut St-François. Xplore engaged the expertise of more than 400 local workers over the course of deployment, contributing to job creation and economic growth in the regions where the fibre was rolled out.
