Bringing Better Internet To Carling Township!

Vianet, in partnership with CENGN, West Parry Sound Smart Community Network and with outstanding support from the Township of Carling are building Fibre-to-the-Home services to the rural community of Carling. Properties outside the fibre build area and within line of site to our tower will have access to Vianet’s fixed wireless network.

Project Updates
September 15th, 2020

Our project is well underway to bring Better Internet to Carling township. Thanks to the teamwork of many our tower site is officially connected. On September 1st hydro was activated to the tower and our equipment was turned live almost immediately. We have successfully connected our first fibre customer and wireless site-checks have begun. Thank you to the residents in the area who have been patient with the disturbance as our contractors and teams worked to get the infrastructure in place. We look forward to scheduling many more installations in the coming weeks.

This project is made possible by our partnership with CENGN and Parry Sound Smart Community Networks and the ongoing commitment to better internet.

You can be part of the solution! Complete a performance test today to help identify Canada’s Internet speeds and be part of the solution to building better internet across Canada https://performance.cira.ca/

Completing this before and after your Vianet installation will help provide data to support future funding efforts in your area.

We understand that everyone is looking forward to your installation and we are too. Every family, student, home office employee, small business owner, senior and essential worker is excited to improve their connection. Our construction crews, administration and installation teams are working hard to get you connected and we appreciate the patience of everyone.

Why Is Vianet Building In Your Area?

We understand what it takes to build rural broadband and funding is important. By partnering with CENGN both companies have made equal initial investments of $250,000 to see this rural community become equipped with reliable internet. Vianet is then investing an additional $200,000 to reach more homes with Fibre in the project area. With a fibre backbone already in Parry Sound and a Wireless tower positioned to support this project, the Carling area made sense.

Better Internet Options

For customers residing in either phase of our Fibre build, our 50 Mbps Unlimited Fibre service offers you the best Internet in the area. If you are outside the Fibre area but close to our wireless tower site request, a site check for our fixed wireless service.

Details on both services are found below.

Where Are We Building?

A wireless tower will be constructed at the north end of Bayview Rd and will be able to service customers with wireless service within line of site of this tower. Our Main Project, Phase 1, will see Fibre infrastructure extend south on Bayview Dr and serve much of Rockcliffe Dr. In Phase 2 Vianet will build Fibre to a number of roads off the Phase 1 line.

FIBRE OPTIC INTERNET

Fibre optic internet lines transfer data using modulated light instead of electricity, which gives them much higher bandwidth capacity, since they’re not bound by the physical limitations of electricity conducting through metal. Fibre internet connections work at speeds literally 100 times faster than those old copper wire connections.

There are many benefits that Fibre optics provide including reliability, scalability, stability, expert support, increased speed which means increased productivity and futureproofing for you.

FIXED WIRELESS INTERNET
Fixed wireless internet brings the internet signal to your home via radio waves transmitted by a base station. When you opt for fixed wireless internet, Vianet will install a receiver on your house. It will communicate with the nearest wireless base station and offer you access to the web via a cable carrying the broadband signal from the receiver to the router in your house.

Fixed wireless internet is a cost effective solution in rural areas where setting up the infrastructure for broadband services is prohibitively expensive.
