WOODSTOCK, NB, Dec. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Woodstock, NB based Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada's largest rural broadband service provider, is proud to announce the successful launch of 25 Mbps rural high-speed Internet in New Brunswick. This huge advance in rural Internet speed is a result of Xplornet's investment in leading-edge Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology that is being used in our fixed wireless high-speed Internet network. Upgraded speeds are currently available in many communities, and all of Xplornet's fixed-wireless network in New Brunswick will be upgraded by 2015.
"New Brunswick can now claim the fastest rural fixed wireless Internet speeds in Canada," said Xplornet President Allison Lenehan, "but New Brunswick is just the start. Xplornet's goal is to make 25 Mbps high-speed Internet available across Canada by 2017, and today's launch is an important step forward on that goal."
Sharing the Good News
Beginning today, Xplornet will launch an aggressive awareness campaign to outline the benefits of this new, high-speed Internet service. "This is transformative speed," said Lenehan, "only a few years ago this kind of speed would have been unimaginable. It's hard to overstate the scale of this announcement, and the pride we feel." At 25 Mbps, Xplornet subscribers will be able to experience everything the Internet has to offer, from streaming super HD content on Netflix to downloading full-screen video content, at affordable prices. "People have been talking about the urban/rural digital divide for years – we've just conquered it," said Lenehan. For rural businesses, these Internet speeds also mean that rural entrepreneurs will be able to do business with the world on a world-class network.
There's More to Come
25 Mbps LTE high-speed Internet is now available in rural areas around the communities of Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John, Miramichi, Dieppe, Sackville, Shediac, Bouctouche, Sussex, Woodstock, Grand Falls and St. Stephen and will continue to grow to other communities.
