Bell Aliant is currently installing high-speed internet lines in nine P.E.I. communities that weren't serviced before.
The work is the continuation of a joint promise made by the provincial government and Aliant to provide high-speed internet to the entire Island. In February 2010 the government said that promise was fulfilled using both wired and wireless technology.
"We're migrating the customers from the wireless service to our wired service as we expand our wireline service," said Aliant vice president Bruce Howatt.
"That's just our natural way of providing our service. We're providing the technology that we like to use to provide for our customers."
The communities now being hardwired previously had to rely on cell networks or satellite. Aliant says its wireless service works as well as its wired service.
Point Prim is one of the communities getting wired services, and some residents there told CBC News they're looking forward to the switch.
"You're trying to run a tourist business or a restaurant business down here, I mean we're in the stone age," said Graham Gillis.
Brenda Adam told CBC she has two different wireless connections from two different cell phone companies. Without the two connections, she said, she would sometimes not be connected at all.
"For reliability, we need two for backup, just to make sure that we're able to connect all the time," said Adam.
"We have to work. We can't live here without working."
While some customers will soon be making the switch from wireless service, Aliant said there will always be pockets of P.E.I. where the wires don't reach.
