ColbaNet leads the way by offering its clients with breakthrough 10 GB internet

MONTREAL, April 25, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - One of the world's leading independent Internet access providers, Montreal-based ColbaNet (Telecom Colba.Net Inc.), reaches new heights in telecommunications services by introducing 10 GB, the  fastest speed Internet connection ever made available to the general public.

Constantly innovating and a leader in its field, ColbaNet distinguishes itself by offering unmatched download and upload speeds to its downtown Montreal subscribers, both residential and commercial. With 20 km of fibre optic deployment in this area and in 10 buildings within its fibre route, ColbaNet is now considering upgrading other downtown buildings to offer this new ultra-high speed service.

"Access to 10 GB Internet is a new milestone in consumer-accessible connectivity," said ColbaNet President and Founder, Joseph Bassili. In addition to offering a novel service, we are providing it through our own fibre optic network, which has considerable growth potential. Backed by over 20 years of experience, we can now better serve our existing clientele and get the lion's share of the market."

In order to take advantage of ColbaNet's services, the owner, building manager or condo owners' association must authorize the installation of ColbaNet's fibre network in its building.

The projected cost for this new service will vary from $300 to $500 per month, depending on the number of potential subscribers in a given building; a greater number of subscribers results into increased cost effectiveness. A number of other fibre optic Internet speeds are also available to the general public as well as to companies. For example, a 1 GB speed would cost a subscriber $ 99 per month for a one-year commitment; to obtain that same rate, you would need 10 to 15 subscribers in one building.

ColbaNet's fibre optic network can now reach more than 8,000 business and 50,000 residential customers. Its network extends from rue Atwater to Boulevard Saint-Laurent, and from the St. Lawrence River to Mount Royal.

This new development opens up a world of possibilities for home automation and the "Internet of Things" (IoT). ColbaNet's optimized services are beneficial not only for tech-savvy individuals, but also for new condominiums or office tower management professionals who want to be "fibred" to satisfy a demanding and diverse clientele seeking intelligent spaces.

"Our service optimizes the Internet experience at home or in a professional setting, and will lead to more functional and reliable connections to make our environments smarter." says Bassili. It will also improve the quality of data transfer, hence maximizing the potential of our electronic devices on a daily basis. "
