Access Rural Broadband in Ontario

I think we can all agree there is an urgent need for rural broadband as an essential service in Ontario. With the rampant spread of COVID-19 local businesses have been working from home and now online learning has pushed the demand for more internet.

Wavedirect is one Telecommunication Company that provides internet service for remote areas like Lakeshore, LaSalle, Leamington, Tecumseh, Amherstburg, Kingsville, Essex, Windsor and Chatham-Kent.

The Government of Canada has been promising to close the digital divide across Canada with the CRTC Broadband Fund. These new public-private partnerships are looking to bring an Internet connection to all rural Ontario communities with broadband speeds of 50 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up all with unlimited data.

Sadly only 40% of homes in rural communities are reaching those benchmarks and fast reliable internet is still a case for additional funding from the Universal Broadband Fund and local internet companies like Wavedirect are accomplishing the task now with fixed wireless internet.

Rural Broadband Providers Checklist

Let’s take a look at each one of these points, one at a time, and explain both the difference and similarities between ISP's. You will quickly see where WaveDirect is similar with other internet companies in the market and what makes us different.

We are trying to bridge the gap between anyone on dial-up internet and any homes and business that don’t have any Rural Broadband Internet Options available at all. WaveDirect telecommunications uses the latest internet technology and tower infrastructure to provide a RELIABLE connection that will get you speeds way better than DSL or even cable.

What makes our technology different is the latest development in dishes and internet management software to manage all connections to customers sign up with our services. But, you don’t have to take our word for it, Truly what makes us different from other Internet Providers is that we let you try our Internet Risk-Free with no contract. That’s Right, 30 Days of FREE Internet, no strings attached. Now let's talk more about your internet options and what they mean...

1) Download / Upload Speeds

Let’s face it, most internet package speeds are prefaced with “up to” a certain Mbps download speed, so you can’t just choose based on the extremely optimistic speeds that the company advertises. Look at the results of actual, real-world speed tests for a more realistic picture. That’s why we Host a Internet Speed Test direct from our website, so anyone can check there current upload and download speeds from whatever ISP they are currently with and compare them to use after they switch.

Our Rural Broadband Internet Packages start at 5 Mbps and Go up to 25 Mbps for download speeds and users can pick exactly what packages work best for their usage. What seems to be most important is watching Netflix streaming services with no buffering or a good upload speed for online gaming.

Studies have found that Netflix often accounts for more than 30% of Internet download traffic in North America. Netflix is a big player in terms of using up internet bandwidth, and they want your connections to be as fast as possible so they can provide the best in high-quality streaming video.

That’s why Netflix publishes an ISP Speed Guide, where they rank Internet service providers based on their average Netflix streaming speed. You can check that out HERE. As you can see from Netflix tests some of the lower end DSL scores are coming in at 2.33Mbps so with WaveDriect’s benchmark with our lowest packages starting at 5 Mbps you will be able to stream HD TV into your home with no problems!

Again, just choose the best available package for your needs and we can even help determine which package is right for you after your Free 30Day trial is complete.

2) Limited Vs. Unlimited Data (No Bit Caps)

Today, more and more internet providers are promoting “Unlimited Internet” as the subscribers of the world have spoken and want to stream without the fear of an overage penalty. Freedom means not having to worry about going over your data limit month after month.

Back in the day, Limited just means that your ISP provider was going to ask you to stop using data at a certain number (say a 40Gig cap) each month, measured in Gigs or Gigabytes. This formally became known as a “Bit Cap”. If and when that monthly bit cap number was exceeded, then the ISP would charge you overage fees.

This has not been favorable for either customers or internet providers alike, as it meant long hours of arguing over the phone about data usage, fluctuating bill prices, and fair terms of service. Wavedirect has quickly and swiftly put an end to such nonsense by offering "Unlimited Data" and all of our packages to ensure you are completely 'shackle free' when it comes to the internet.

3) Throttling (Slowing Down the Internet Connection)

The trade-off here is that ISP’s who allow Unlimited Internet or No Bit Caps, will monitor traffic with advanced equipment to balance the internet load of all subscribers and throttle anyone they suspect is abusing their internet service.

Essentially by throttling down speeds and ultimately usage, it ensures everyone on the same network doesn't suffer because a few people who are abusing the system. WaveDirect offers Unlimited Internet for Rural Broadband users in Ontario and provides a reliable connection for everyone on infrastructure.

That means we will give you the best service possible with no throttling, in 99.9% of cases, some other companies will throttle users at peak hours or when they’re available bandwidth is limited and overloaded with too many users. WaveDirect has lots of room on its network for new users, just like you!

4) Reliable Internet Connection

WaveDirect offers all users a reliable internet connection and has a very high uptime success rate. This means no waiting for things to connect or dropping downloads when you are trying to get things done. We pride ourselves on our fast speeds, customer satisfaction and our word of mouth testimonials.

5) Customer Support
