Questions about the Network

What is the Fibre-to-the Home (FTTH) Network?

Tobiano Communication Inc’s Fibre-to the-Home Network delivers telecommunication signals

through bundled glass fibre strands rather than conventional copper and coaxial cable. These
fibre optic cables are located in underground conduits distributed throughout Tobiano’s roads,
avoiding unsightly overhead wiring in our resort community. The Tobiano FTTH Network
extends fibre technology along the “last mile”, the final leg of connectivity from the
communications service provider to each individual Tobiano home.

Why was the network built?

With the advent of internet and digital television, consumers are now using telecommunications
services that require data transfer at rates and volumes significantly higher than conventional
distribution systems were designed to accommodate. Further, rural areas are often the last to
experience extension of new telecommunications services.

Tobiano’s high capacity FTTH Network is capable of delivering enough bandwidth for the
technologies of today and tomorrow. Future technologies such as videophones and 3D
television will require more data transfer capabilities. Today, Tobiano Communications Inc. can
deliver telephone, digital television and high-speed internet to your Tobiano home, at a
performance standard currently unavailable in most urban centres.

Who are the telephone, internet and digital television service providers?

Tobiano Communications Inc. has agreements with Mascon Cable Systems and Titan
Communications Inc. to provide Tobiano residents with HD television programming and digital
telephone service across TCI’s Fibre-to-the-Home Network. Tobiano Communications Inc. has
also entered into agreements with several communications companies to connect Tobiano’s
FTTH Network to major fibre-optic trunkmains throughout British Columbia and the world. As
digital technologies advance, additional services and service providers will inevitably be offered
through Tobiano’s FTTH Network.
