Ontario, Canada: Telecom Ottawa providing broadband to 154 school facilities

Telecom Ottawa, owned by municipal power utility Hydro Ottawa, has signed a 10-year agreement to provide broadband access to 154 schools and facilities owned by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB).

Telecom Ottawa uses the 174 km. fibre optic cable network developed by Hydro Ottawa and has recently been expanding into nearby areas.

"Telecom Ottawa considers the contract a big step forward in its plans to become the region's top provider of Internet services to the so-called "MUSH" sector -- municipalities, universities, school boards and hospitals."
