Markham, ON – January 13, 2023 – Xplore Inc., Canada’s fibre and 5G broadband company for rural living, today announced that more than 460 homes and businesses in Middlesex County can now connect to gigabit speeds on Xplore’s next-generation fibre-to-the-premise network.

Xplore received support for this project from Southwestern Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT), a broadband expansion project designed to improve internet connectivity in underserved communities and rural areas across Southwestern Ontario.

“Today’s exciting announcement empowers residents and businesses in Middlesex County to more fully enjoy rural living and participate in the digital economy,” said Allison Lenehan, President and CEO, Xplore Inc. “Customers can now connect to gigabit speeds on our fibre network. And that’s just the beginning: We’re also investing to bring fibre-powered 5G Home Internet to Middlesex County soon.”

Mr. Lenehan added that testing is already underway and fibre-powered 5G Home Internet is expected to be available in the coming months. The service will offer download speeds up to 100 Mbps – with even faster speeds rolling out over time.

Xplore is also expanding its fibre footprint in Middlesex County and neighbouring communities as part of the Government of Ontario’s Accelerated High Speed Internet Program (AHSIP). Overall, the company will connect nearly 55,000 homes and businesses in eastern, central and southwestern Ontario to gigabit Internet speeds through AHSIP.
