A Look Ahead at 2017
February 17, 2017
The New Year is officially in full swing, and with it comes a lot of exciting plans for our Xplornet customers. As Canada’s leading rural Internet service provider, we are always striving to improve our home phone and Internet service offerings — giving you fast and reliable options, no matter where you live.
Last December, in a truly out-of-this-world event, our newest satellite successfully launched into space. As the largest capacity broadband satellite ever launched, this satellite is the first of two new satellites Xplornet has invested in that will help bring our valued rural customers faster and more reliable Internet service beginning this spring. And be sure to watch the skies again later this year when we launch the second satellite. Combined, these two new satellites will triple our total available bandwidth and provide download speeds up to 25 Mbps across Canada (that’s faster than many of the most rural areas of the country have ever seen before — hello, YouTube and Netflix). Talk about stellar improvement!
From the skies to the ground, we are also planning on growing our fixed wireless network this year with more LTE Internet service rolling out across Canada. Look for more towers, faster speeds, more data capacity and more communities served, bringing these rural customers fast Internet and lots of data.
Also this year, we are committed to continually improving our Home Phone service as well as updating and improving the usability of the MyXplornet customer site, making both of these services work better for you.
As always, we value your feedback on what you love and what needs some work. We are looking forward to a great year ahead!
