In today’s fast-moving world, staying in touch is vital and thanks to a high-speed Internet connection, it’s easy too.
Most Canadians living in densely populated, urban areas across the country enjoy faster Internet for entertainment, as well as conducting business and schooling online.
But those from rural Canada aren’t always as fortunate. Sparsely populated, remote communities can lag behind with older, slower Internet services that hamper productivity, and put a damper on the enjoyment and the feeling of connection the Internet provides.
Thankfully, Xplornet Communication Inc.’s mission from day one has been to bring rural Canada up to speed by focusing its efforts on providing the Internet infrastructure and service in keeping with the times.
“We have significant infrastructure and customers across Canada, including rural Saskatchewan,” says James Maunder, who grew up in Nipawin, attended the University of Saskatchewan and is now Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs at Xplornet.
“We have about one million customers from rural communities accessing our services each day, accounting for about 400,000 homes.”
Xplornet’s service coverage reaches as far north as Cambridge Bay—a small community of around 1,800 people located on Victoria Island in the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut—to as far south as Leamington—a community of about 28,000 just east of Detroit on the shores of Lake Erie in Ontario, whose deep, southern location has it carry the motto the “Sun Parlour of Canada.”
“Xplornet was founded as a small business about 15 years ago by a small group of entrepreneurs who wanted to deliver the Internet to their friends and family who didn’t have access to it,” Maunder explains. “Now, the company has expanded to deliver service to a rapidly growing population of rural Canadians.
“And we have a significant part of that footprint in the province of Saskatchewan, something we are very excited about.”
Traditionally, delivering faster connection speeds to remote areas has been a costly endeavor that deterred other service providers.
“Our focus is out of the major cities,” Maunder says.
“We use a mix of technologies – fibre, wireless, and even satellite. The technology used depends on location, but our mission remains the same: to connect you to high-speed Internet, with unlimited data, at an affordable price.”
Keeping Canadians in rural Canada connected to what matters is Xplornet’s mission.
