Internet – secure, reliable connectivity
Hydro One Telecom provides commercial Internet solutions, as well as wholesale Internet solutions.

Combine your Internet with optional DDoS Shield to stop attacks before they reach your network.
Features of our Internet solutions include:
- Dedicated bandwidth: Get the highest levels of availability and reliability with a dedicated connection.
- Network resilience: Hydro One Telecom’s robust fibre-optic network employs multi-layer, fault-tolerant architecture with diverse path routing to keep your data moving and your business connected in the event of an outage.
- Secure networking: DDoS Shield uses automated cyber threat detection and mitigation technology to monitor for malicious DDoS traffic and block it before it reaches your network.
Ethernet – high speed, low latency, scalable bandwidth
Our Ethernet solutions are engineered to provide high-performance networking, low latency, and built-in resilience — and are targeted toward business-grade traffic with high availability. With Hydro One Telecom’s Ethernet solutions, you can create a highly secure network that connects your headquarters, data centres, satellite offices and remote employees to the applications they require.

MPLS – designed for business-grade traffic
With Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), your business can create a highly secure network that connects your headquarters, data centres, satellite offices and mobile employees. Hydro One Telecom’s MPLS is a business-grade service that does not use the public Internet and is therefore not subject to the same risks and performance limitations.
Features of our MPLS solutions include:
- Class of Service (CoS) capabilities: Multiple CoS options allow you to prioritize and manage latency-sensitive services such as VoIP, video conferencing and mission-critical applications.
- Managed Routing: Predictable routing is configured and managed by our experts, freeing up your IT resources. In the event of a network outage, our MPLS solutions offer fast network failover and reconvergence to automatically reroute network traffic.
- Secure network traffic with geographical reach: As an MPLS provider, we are distinguished by our private fibre-optic network that provides access to thousands of key fibre-ready access points in Ontario, Quebec and the United States.
Wavelength – high bandwidth and customized routing
Carrier networks, financial institutions, government agencies and technology service providers need to move large data sets quickly and securely. For these businesses, high bandwidth and low latency are hallmarks of optimal network connectivity. Hydro One Telecom provides Wavelength solutions that can expand your organization’s network capacity and reach with scalable solutions to reliably increase performance while reducing risk.
Features of our Wavelength solutions include:
- Tailored network: We provide network design, planning and implementation to ensure that your network is tailor-made to suit your organization’s needs.
- Custom interface: Network access and connectivity are provisioned with the interfaces you require.
- Highest bandwidth: Hydro One Telecom’s Wavelength solution provides dedicated bandwidth and speeds of up to 100Gbps to move large amounts of data quickly and securely.
Dark Fibre – dedicated single-tenant service
Dark Fibre connectivity provides the ultimate in performance and scalability for businesses and organizations that require complete control over their network; customers can upgrade the speed of their networks without having to involve the Internet Service Provider. Dark Fibre also provides the highest levels of security, since it is a dedicated single-tenant service and no customer data touches the network provider or any of their customers.
Features of our Dark Fibre solutions include:
- Flexible term commitments: Dark Fibre is available for shorter or longer-term agreements, providing your business with certainty and peace of mind.
