Xplornet buys Manitoban internet business of Full Throttle Networks

5 Apr 2022

Xplornet Communications, Canada’s largest rural-focused broadband provider, has completed the acquisition of the high speed internet business of Full Throttle Networks in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Full Throttle operates a fixed wireless network providing broadband access service to over 1,600 residential and commercial customers in Winnipeg and surrounding communities. The acquired customers are anticipated to benefit from Xplornet’s fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) and 5G fixed wireless rollout plans in Manitoba, with the group currently expanding its fibre network across the province and upgrading towers with 5G equipment to deliver faster speeds to over 350 rural and 30 First Nation communities. Full Throttle customers located in the network upgrade areas will be able to take advantage of fixed wireless downlink/uplink speeds up to 100Mbps/10Mbps, as well as speeds of 1Gbps in fibre areas, once the project is complete.
