What is the average time frame for deployment throughout
Several factors can influence how long it takes to complete a full installation cycle at a new property, which can include proximity to the network, the number of units within the community and the type of connection being installed. Atlantic Broadband works with each property on building out a project timeline, from the construction phase through the installation of services to individual residents.

Project management staff will work to build and install a branch from our miles of fiber optic networks to your facility, without any cost or disruption to the community.
Does Atlantic Broadband own its own network?
Yes, Atlantic Broadband operates and manages its own fiber network and transport, allowing for much faster response times – especially during an outage. It also allows bandwidth to be increased at any time during the contract, ensuring the scalability to adapt to future technology. Plus, the reliability of a direct networking backbone eliminates the need to pass through a third party.

Every property is unique. Atlantic Broadband will review your communications needs and customize a solution that’s optimized for your community, whether it’s delivering fiber to the unit or fiber to the property.
Will residents receive personalized support alongside Atlantic Broadband solutions?

They provide a unique, personal touch and guarantee that everyone receives the technology they deserve.
Can residents choose to stay with their previous provider if their community is switching to Atlantic Broadband?
Residents may choose to keep their previous provider, but they will still be responsible for paying the homeowners association charge for Atlantic Broadband bulk services, in addition to paying for the services they wish to retain from another provider.
Can residents manage their accounts online?
Atlantic Broadband offers a robust online portal that makes it easy to manage a range of services. Customers can sign in to change account settings, pay bills, see channel lineups or even check out the latest on-demand movies.
