North Bay is one of the major centres on several high capacity fibre optic networks that link the national service provider across Canada and, in turn, connect to international carriers. North Bay connects Northern Ontario to southern centres and also provides a northern bridge between the eastern and western-most points of the province.
This east-west link offers redundant connectivity to major carriers in the south, further ensuring consistent, world-class telecommunications services to businesses and residents in the city.
Telecommunications services currently available in North Bay include ISDN, (Microlink and Megalink), Centrex voice and data, call management services, custom calling features and voice mail. North Bay is part of Bell Canada's Special Services Digital Network which provides services such as frame relay, Megaroute, Megastream and Advanced Intelligent Network Services.
