The new year is here, and we are all setting intentions for 2022. The Xplornet team included! In 2022, we’re staying on track with our commitment to invest $500 million by 2025 to bring rural Canadians fast, reliable, and affordable Internet.

If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that being connected to what matters most is critical and should be possible for everyone, regardless of where they live.

The new year also has us reflecting on the last. In 2021, Xplornet had one of our biggest infrastructure development years yet:

  • We built a total of 215 new towers to increase capacity and improve coverage across rural Canada.
  • Upgraded 829 towers, many of them to next gen 5G fixed wireless technology to deliver even faster speeds.
  • We acquired 3500 MHZ of spectrum, our largest spectrum investment to-date, which enabled us to unlock the potential of 5G.
  • We launched Canada’s first rural 5G standalone network, with plans to expand to 250 additional communities over the course of 2022.
  • We started construction on fibre-to-the-home projects in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island – with more to come in 2022.

We’re so thankful to our customers for their support and we’re ready to deliver on their connectivity needs this year – and beyond!

Below you will find a list of towers that have been built since the last list was published.
