Installing a Fibre Connection

QNet pays all costs associated with installing a fibre optic connection to a building.

Installation details:

  • QNet works under the direction of the property manager or the project manager appointed by the building owner or strata council.
  • QNet looks for the least invasive way to bring the fibre cable into a building. If QNet needs to breach the fabric of a building, engineering best practices will be used, including taking x-rays of the wall to be breached.
  • Any external ducts installed or used by QNet will be sealed to prevent water entering the building.
  • QNet’s fibre optic connection is always installed to the main telecommunications room serving the building or complex. Internal wiring for distribution of telecom services is typically the responsibility of the telecom service provider.
  • Because QNet’s fibre optic connection is unlit (i.e. dark fibre) and uses no electrical power, there are no operating costs associated with the QNet connection. 

Agreements and support:

  • QNet will enter into a formal business access agreement with the property owner or strata council on request.
  • QNet will continue to support the telecom duct and fibre connection for as long as the fibre cable is in service. That includes remediating any future problems associated with the connection.
