Internet and connectivity service providers

The Internet and Internet usage patterns have grown and are continuing to grow. Expectations of speed and reliability have increased along with high bandwidth usage patterns such as video conferencing, video streaming and cloud operations. These patterns have increased the need for higher Internet connection speeds. The First Nations Technology Council has compiled this connectivity resource collection to assist First Nations navigating connectivity technologies and Internet service providers.

In this Topic Spotlight Resource Collection, FNBC Knowledge Network members will find:

  • charts that outline today’s usage habits/needs by bandwidth per user of common Internet activities;
  • a comparative overview of internet connectivity options that outlines the capabilities and infrastructure provided by each technology;
  • a list of Internet and connectivity service providers who can help bring connectivity from the backbone to the last mile.
