Waverley Heights Update
BellMTS has started a FTTP (Fiber To The Prem) project in the neighbourhood of Waverley Heights.
The company has a multi year project to overlay the City of Winnipeg with fiber optic cables – bringing new services to the homes/residences in Winnipeg. In the Waverley Heights area, the new fiber cables are buried underground on the front streets – either on existing easements that BellMTS has on private properties or on City of Winnipeg righ of way with approvals for alignments received from the City. They will NOT work on any private property.
Residents were notified of the work taking place by Construction Notice door knockers/leaflets that were left at every address by the company’s contractors. The door knockers explain that BellMTS will be working in the neighbourhood soon. They also have people knocking on the residents doors asking if they would like the Fiber Service Drop buried to the side of their home (on their private property) at the time of construction or shortly after. Residents can decline the offer.
The work in the Waverley Heights area will probably take 6-8 weeks to complete and should be all wrapped up by the end of August. If you have any questions or complaints, please use the following contact information:
