Project Overview

Xplore is upgrading and expanding the existing broadband network to reach underserved communities in Prince Edward Island. Xplore will provide fixed wireless coverage to 17,000 civic addresses across Prince Edward Island, offering download speeds up to 100 Mbps and upload speeds up to 10 Mbps. Xplore is also building a fibre-to-the-premise network that will reach over 3,000 civic addresses and offer gigabit download and upload speeds. More than 1200 residents and businesses can already benefit from Xplore Fibre. All work related to these projects is expected to be complete by September 2023.
