CEO Jonathan Foster said he is eager to dispel the myth that rural residents in Manitoba have to settle for less when it comes to connecting to the web.
You’ve been told high speed internet is too much to expect if you live in rural Manitoba. You’ve been told you have to settle for slower. After all, you don’t live in the city, right?
"We’re here to blow those excuses away," he said in a posting on his website, hurricanehighspeed.com. "Hurricane High Speed Internet wants to take Manitoba by storm, bringing fast & reliable broadcasted internet to homes that aren’t on the grid."
Hurricane High Speed uses a "Point to Multi Point network" which allows users to connect to the internet without needing a landline or cable attached to their home or business. Once the tower in Marchand in up, plans are already in the works to expand the network further west and north.
