Xplornet hails improvement in rural internet via satellite

12 May 2017

Canadian rural broadband specialist Xplornet Communications has announced the launch of an upgraded internet service supported by the EchoStar XIX satellite, now available to new and existing customers. Xplornet says that, combined with the scheduled launch of the ViaSat-2 satellite on 1 June, its satellite internet capacity is being tripled, resulting in ‘more speed and data at affordable prices’ for its users. Xplornet’s newly launched satellite internet service offers speeds up to 25Mbps (download) – the fastest of its kind in Canada. Allison Lenehan, President and CEO of Xplornet, said the latest satellite launches will ‘provide new customers with more data at speeds not previously available in many parts of Canada’.
