Call 519-258-2333 for details or keep reading for more information about fibre optic technology.
Fibre optic technology is the use of glass or other transparent materials to transmit wavelengths of light. With a transmitter and receiver at each end of a fibre cable, we can transmit data at incredible speeds.
Fibre optic cables are designed with distance in mind. Copper based networks from other providers suffer from attenuation and noise issues which causes drops in speed the further out you go. Fibre optics do not have this issue. Whether it's 1 kilometre or 20, fibre optics transmit at the same speed.
Fibre optics are delivered similarly to copper based networks. MNSi runs fibre from our data centre along existing utility poles or through underground conduits. From there we break out from nodes on utility poles or utility enclosures on the ground to run a fibre cable right into your home or business.
Within your building a device called an ONT is installed to connect the fibre cable. An ONT is similar in function to a DSL or cable modem. From there you connect to existing routers, computers, and telephones using standard ethernet and telephone wires.

Enjoy all the latest and greatest video and music services, from Netflix to Amazon Prime, through Twitch, iTunes and YouTube.
Netflix, Amazon and other video services use continuous large portions of bandwidth. HD and Ultra HD streaming may use from 5 to 25 Megabits of your internet connection. Streaming users who typically would also use multiple devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets are advised to opt for packages with download speeds of at least 50 Megabits per second.
With fast upload speeds available on fibre you can also upload videos to YouTube at the fraction of the time it takes on DSL and cable. Share your creativity with others in minutes instead of hours.

Fibre optic technology has the benefit of not being susceptible to weather conditions that would normally affect DSL and cable. When there is a storm outside, the interference usually associated with lightning does not affect your connection and there is no worry of water affecting line quality. ** While the ONT provided with the service has up to 8 hour battery backup, you must ensure your other devices also have an alternate power source during a power outage.
Select neighbourhoods in Windsor have already been fitted with MNSi's own high speed fibre optic infrastructure, with more being upgraded soon. To check if fibre is available in your area, you can check our fibre map or call customer service at 519-258-2333.
