Small communities stay connected and up to speed with reliable Internet access

Being safe and connected. That’s the essence of what Xplornet is providing rural Internet users across the country, like those in northern Alberta, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As increasingly more people have relied on working and learning from home, Xplornet’s mandate to offer the convenience and freedom of a high-speed, unlimited data connection has grown in importance.

“We are simply a rural Internet provider. Our game is not to serve the larger metro communities but cater to the areas bigger companies can’t explore,” says Dean Cummer, Xplornet’s district manager – Alberta North. “We bring the Internet to those in smaller markets who not only want it but depend on it.”

Whether it’s being able to log onto a video conference with co-workers, keep up with school lessons or enjoy a streaming movie night with friends, Xplornet is working to keep those outside major population centres feeling just as close as their urban counterparts.

To provide that, Xplornet continues to make investments in equipment and infrastructure to ensure service is not only available to smaller communities but is also robust enough to meet the growing needs of today’s household.

“Because so many people in one home can now be dependent on the Internet, it’s been vital to be able to provide a service that offers connection speeds of up to 25 megabits per second,” Cummer says. “And we are looking to double speeds and offer up to 50 megabits very soon.”

The current, 25 megabits per second service is more than capable of running streaming services such as Netflix, while simultaneously providing Internet access for multiple users in the household at any given time.

Going hand-in-hand with that connection speed is Xplornet’s unlimited data - without any caps.

“That cap-free service is so important because some providers actually limit you,” Cummer says. “So, what we have is truly unlimited.”

“You use it as you need it, with no worries.”

You can try Xplornet Internet risk free for 30 days.

As Xplornet continues to grow, the company also encourages its customers to help nurture its expansion through its Refer a Friend program.

“We want people to encourage others to try us out. And if they do, we will send them a credit on their next bill,” Cummer says. “It’s a way of giving back to those customers who are helping us build the business.

“So, tell a friend if our service is good. And if it’s not, we’ll make it better because everyone deserves access to the Internet.

“It’s our mission.”
