Chatham-Kent, Ontario is home to roughly 100,000 people. And you know what? That small number of residents is how most of those living in and just outside of the area like it! Smaller pockets of houses, with lots of spaces in between!
It allows people to enjoy the local area's beaches, car shows, and other activities without feeling overwhelmed. Rondeau park is still one of my favorite placed to visit in the fall.
While there are several advantages to living in rural communities along the coast of Lake Erie, one of the burdens locations like outer Chatham-Kent carry is a seemingly profound lack of quality rural wireless internet services. If you've heard whispers from friends and family telling you that the quality of the internet you'll have access to in your rural community will fall short of your expectations, stop listening and keep reading this post!
Below, we share a handful of tips on how you can find quality rural wireless internet today that can service your home.
Sure, outer Chatham-Kent is rural. That doesn't mean that the people residing in the area are more reclusive or less neighborly than people in big cities. On the contrary, we've found that what Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas lack in scale, they make up for with their foundational willingness to help those around them.
So, if you're looking for home internet for rural areas that can reach your house, chat with a neighbor and ask who they're using. We're willing to bet that at least a handful of them are using WaveDirect's residential wireless services.
Don't have a neighbor to strategize your internet service questions alongside? No problem! We're willing to bet that a local coffee shop, printer, or other business residing in your area has perspectives on service providers they'd love to share with you.
It may be that the business you talk to is leaning on business-targeted internet packages through the provider they use and that their prices will look different when compared to residential-targeted packages. Keep that in mind during your discussion.
Local journalists in rural towns are among the hardest working people our team has ever had the pleasure of meeting. Among the many stories they break, they're quick to inform locals on new and exciting communications advancements coming to their area and which communications providers are leading the charge on servicing the community.
If the local publication you follow has a tech section, keep an eye on it to see if internet providers get called out as organizations worth doing business with. You're also welcome to write whichever journalist covers Chatham-Kent's tech beats to see if they can feed you a recommendation directly.
While not for everyone, trades are publications that cover certain industries broadly while occasionally doing stories on what companies are doing on a local level. You can Google search "Telecom Trades Ontario" to try and find a publisher that puts out information that's of interest to you.
