I live in rural Ontario and after 3 months of searching, the only internet option I've found is Xplorenet. I have spoken to MANY people on this service and it isn't worth the money. This issue extends to many, many areas northeast of Toronto, as well as the far North.
Recently I became aware that Telus offers unlimited LTE data in many areas through a smarthub, but not in the northern areas. I have spoken to so many people who would be so quick to invest in these programs as there is no other reliable option at all. There are entire towns who would be interested, as long as they were aware of its availability.
