FibreOP keeps growing: Bell Aliant brings future-proof network to 4,700 more 
Nova Scotia homes and businesses 
PORT HAWKESBURY, NS, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Things have just gotten better -- 
and faster -- in several Nova Scotia communities as Bell Aliant Inc. (TSX: BA) 
extends its powerful FibreOP technology to Port Hawkesbury and Port Hastings, 
and adds new premises to its footprint in Truro, Antigonish, and Sydney. In 
total, the $2.4 million investment will bring Atlantic Canada's fastest 
Internet speeds and best TV service to more than 4,700 new residential and 
business customers. 
"We're excited to extend our industry-leading FibreOP technology to even more 
customers in Nova Scotia," said Andre LeBlanc, vice president, residential 
markets. "FibreOP is the only 100 per cent fibre-optic network that connects 
directly to a customers' home or business, delivering the fastest Internet 
download and upload speeds and the best TV experience, hands down." 
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, and demand for speed 
and bandwidth will continue to grow as the number of Internet-enabled devices 
per household grows. FibreOP is designed to grow with those demands. 
Bell Aliant FibreOP is currently available in Halifax, Truro, New Glasgow, 
Glace Bay, Annapolis Valley, Sydney, Bridgewater, Digby, Antigonish, Yarmouth 
and Lunenburg. 
Bell Aliant was the first in Canada to cover an entire city with 
fibre-to-the-home technology. By the end of 2013, the company will have 
extended its coverage to reach 800,000 premises across its territory. 
Customers in Port Hawkesbury, Port Hastings, Sydney, Truro, and Antigonish 
areas can pre-register for FibreOP service at
