Grand Bahama is set to be pegged as the leader in cutting edge fiber connectivity, with more homes recently passed to receive BTC’s affordable, superfast, and unstoppable fiber.
As of last month, BTC passed an additional 2,000+ homes in the nation’s second city. This is 500 more homes passed when compared to fiber network expansion in October.
“This marks the most homes that we have released in any given month since we started this entire project, so November was indeed a standout month,” said Dominic Petty, BTC’s Executive Senior Manager for the Northern Bahamas.
Continued Petty: “These latest homes passed in November brings us to a 90 percent completion rate of installing fiber in Grand Bahama, so we have 10 percent remaining in order to have Grand Bahama fully fiberized.”
The latest homes passed in Grand Bahama are on Pinta Ave (Bahamia), Yorkshire Dr. (Bahamia), Rum Cay Drive (Bahamia), Heritage, Lunar Boulevard, Regency Park, and Caravel Beach.
“For the new year of 2024, we want to ensure that most of the businesses in Grand Bahama have our fiber services,” Petty said. “We plan to decommission our copper network and migrate customers to fiber in the first half of 2024.”
Meanwhile, Petty said that thousands of customers in Grand Bahama that are connected to BTC’s fiber have shared that they are very pleased with the service and speed that they receive.
“They are very surprised to know how much value we offer, and they are very pleased with the variety of FLOW TV channels that we have, so a lot of our customers now see us through a different lens since they now have fiber. It’s like night and day. It’s a big difference and we are thrilled to bring great service and value to our customers.”
Customers signing up for fiber services will be eligible to participate in BTC’s “Christmas is on Us” campaign and will have the opportunity to win a brand-new Kia Sonet with one year of comprehensive auto insurance.
