Over the past couple of months, Storm Internet has been working 24/7 to get our project in South Glengarry up and running. Due to Covid-19, we ran into some unexpected delays, but ultimately, we were able to get things going in North Lancaster.
During the summer, you may have seen a few of our team members out in the community in the Bainsville/Creg Quay and the North Lancaster area, spreading the word about the new towers we were building, and what that meant for the community. The team spoke with many members of the community, and quickly realized that reliable, high-speed internet was something that was needed, and widely accepted among South Glengarry.
A few months later, in November, the tower for North Lancaster was starting to come together, and the street team was out once again in North Lancaster, introducing Storm Internet’s high-speed internet to the area. The tower was delivered, assembled on site, and by December, the full 203-foot tower was completely assembled.
Now that the tower is fully commissioned, what does that mean for the residents? Well, residents will now be able to get speeds up to 50 Mbps down/10 Mbps up within a 5 km range from the tower, and speeds up to 25 Mbps down/5 Mbps up within a 10 km range from the tower.
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been testing the services with a few of the local community members. We were able to catch up with Steve O. of North Lancaster, who has been one of the few community members connected to the service to help out with testing.
Prior to getting connected with Storm Internet, Steve had a much slower connection. He loves his technology, and has multiple smart devices within his home. Before, there were times where some of their devices would have to be disconnected from the Wi-Fi to be able to watch Netflix. However, now that’s not the case. Storm Internet was able to provide reliable, high-speed internet access, and Steve has not run into any connection issues since.
“The service is great, very friendly, and the communication between you and your clients is great – you keep everyone updated.” – Steve O., North Lancaster
