High Speed Internet

I posted back in the summer about our internet woes. Our service from Xplornet, formerly Detour Wireless was relatively slow and at times unreliable.

I recently took up an offer from Bell to install their high speed rural internet. It’s still a line of sight system but we have gone from 3 Mb/s down 1 Mb/s up with Xplornet to 25 Mb/s down and 10 Mb/s up with Bell.

That’s a significant increase and I’m also hoping for better reliability. The Bell tech was here today and everything seems to be working. And yes, it is noticeably faster.

As part of the deal with Bell, we are also getting an upgrade to our satellite TV package. Just in time for winter!
