Vianet, in partnership with the Township of The Archipelago and West Parry Sound Smart Community Network are happy to bring Vianet's ﬁxed wireless internet to the Pointe-au-Baril area.
This expansion demonstrates Vianet's commitment to identify communities in need, work together with local organizations to help solve the rural broadband challenge and further develop our growing network in the Parry Sound District .
On Saturday, May 7th, we held a Community Information Session at the Pointe-Au-Baril Community Centre. During this event, we provided residents with a presentation about the benefits of Vianet's fixed wireless internet, answered questions about the installation process and provided information about how to signup for a wireless site check to see if you are eligible for service.
To watch the live event and learn more about the project in the video below:
Vianet crews and contractors have been working hard over the winter to bring better Internet to Point Au Baril. A new 260' tower has been successfully erected and work has begun to install technologies and power to the tower. Our crews are on target to have the tower operational mid Spring 2022. Customers who are interested in service can sign up online at their convenience and we will hold their order anticipating a late spring installation.

Small towns deserve better internet and Pointe-au-Baril is no exception. This project was made possible with equal funding and partnership from the Township of The Archipelago.
This underserved community is close in proximity to Vianet's existing network and our experience building ﬁxed wireless internet across Northern Ontairo's rugged terrain is ideal for this rural town. This expansion will bring much needed reliable connectivity to both full time residents and seasonal home owners.
The tower is located just off North Shore Rd., Pointe-au-Baril, Township of The Archipelago, ON.
