Getting Internet Lines

Hello everyone and I’m wondering about getting a internet line to our business. It’s in a bit of remote location but it is right off of the #2 highway so there is telephones poles that run along our business. Telus said they won’t have a fibre run until next year and our office will be expanding from 40 employees to 100 in a few weeks. Not to mention there is another truck shop business beside us that could use better internet.

Is this a matter of Telus’s own pace or a high demand?

We currently fork out $1000 month for a radio shot for 2 up, 20 down. As the businesses IT representative I’m pleading for help for faster internet speeds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Both. Telus would be adding Fibre to high value locations where they can most easily negotiate right-of-way access to utility corridors. Even in locations where the fibre passes the driveway, does not mean fibre will come to the homes and businesses along that path - there has to be locations to install the fibre infrastructure from the main fibre to the subsidiary fibres. In some places where main cross-Canada fibre is strung, homeowners still get 6Mbps service, as there is no Fibre infrastructure to these scattered houses.

You might see if a point to point network of some sort might meet your needs

Telus sells 2 forms of fibre for business.

Call back and ask about managed fibre.

 

You will likely get a different answer (and a much different price)
