High-Speed Internet: Advantages for Businesses in Rural Alberta
For over 25 years, MCSnet has kept businesses throughout northeastern Alberta connected. As the demand for rural broadband services expands, so have rural business internet offerings in your area.
Fixed High-Speed Wireless Internet for small and medium businesses
Whether you’re using Quickbooks to send invoices to your customers or monitoring remote oil well sites, MCSnet has the ability to keep you connected to your customers and your business operations.
Traditionally, our Fixed Wireless services have met the needs of many small and medium businesses. With our reliable network of over 530 towers, we can connect your company to high-speed internet in rural towns and remote areas across northeastern Alberta and across the Saskatchewan border.
In 2019, we launched an Extreme Unlimited plan and an Extreme Unlimited Pro plan to meet the needs of the higher-end business internet user. The Pro plan also fits the needs of many organizations with its next-business-day service guarantee and its dedicated VIP support line. Even if you just need an internet connection to sign into your Quickbooks Online account and send some quotes via email, our packages start at $49.95 monthly. Click here to explore our Fixed Wireless packages.
Dedicated Wireless for medium and large corporations
Our Dedicated Wireless services are available across the region, providing speeds of up to 100 Mbps for both upload and download connectivity. These connections require special equipment and are more frequently used by medium and large corporations that require consistent and dedicated upload and download speeds. Dedicated Wireless connections also provide you with up to 10 static IP addresses, our same business-day service guarantee, and a VIP support line.
As our licensed wireless internet spectrum expands with transit fiber optics between our wireless towers, more connectivity and lower prices are available for Dedicated Wireless services on one-, three-, and five-year terms. The speeds available to your place of business will continue to depend on line-of-sight to one of our towers, as well as distance.
Give us a call at 1-866-390-3928 ext. 3 or email email@example.com to receive your customized quote for Dedicated Wireless services.
Custom Fiber builds for all business sizes
Once upfront installation costs are covered, Custom Fiber is the most reliable internet for your business, and it’s scalable for future growth and technology demands. The best time to take advantage of Custom Fiber is when our construction crews are already deployed to build underground fiber in your area. Monthly package prices are very affordable once the installation is complete. For more information, visit our Business Internet page.
An example of fiber connection opportunities is our transit fiber partnership with a local municipality. We’re currently working with the County of Barrhead to build 58 km of transit fiber this season, and businesses and residents along the route have the opportunity to tie into the fiber optic network.
