Service Upgrades to Serve You Better

MCSnet continues to be the leader in rural internet across Northeastern Alberta and Northwestern Saskatchewan. Just because you live in rural Alberta doesn’t mean you should have to contend with unexpected internet interruptions.

We receive regular inquiries about our service upgrades. In an effort to provide more information to our customers, we have compiled a list of communities that have seen upgrades in 2020.

Throughout our network of 550+ towers, we continue to upgrade equipment, install additional Access Points (AP), replace towers with taller ones, or dig fiber in between our towers to increase bandwidth capabilities.

This list includes the general areas of where these upgrades have taken place and the type of upgrade:
