New Xplornet LTE Service

The material in this post is provided for informational purposes only and should not be considered in any way an endorsement or recommendation of Xplornet or its services.

Since the middle of 2017, Xplornet has built around 70+ towers in Northern Ontario in the area stretching from Manitoulin Island to Timmins and Including St. Joseph Island and the Goulais River area,

As of 19 May 2018, the Xplornet website indicates the LTE fixed wireless service is available in the Goulais postal code area (P0S 1E0) There is no similar listing for St. Joseph Island.  

The services offered are:

Down/Up Speed
Entry 50
5/1 Mbps
50 GB
LTE 10/200
200 GB
LTE 25/400
400 GB
LTE 25/500
500 GB

Note: There are the usual additional statements about “up to speeds”, throttling, additional GB overage charges, etc.

This is a terrestrial service and should not be confused with the Xplornet satellite service. According to Xplornet documents, they use fibre optics or m/w wireless to provide backhaul connectivity to the Internet backbone. There is no indication what is being used in Goulasi River.

I am not aware of anyone that has signed up for this service but I would to hear from anyone who has.
