Broadband Canada

Company improves Internet to remote areas

Grants support high-tech expansion in Upper Squamish and Upper Paradise

Upper Paradise Valley homes will be the latest to get broadband Internet service as part of a plan to upgrade technology in rural areas of the region.

The work is being done as a result of a grant from a provincial program, Connecting British Columbia, and a federal one, Connection Canadians.

Whistler‘s Base Technology, which also has operations in Squamish and Pemberton, is overseeing the project and applied for the grants in January 2015.

The B.C. grant helped get work started for the first phase, which covered the Upper Squamish Valley. The next phase will move into the Upper Paradise Valley.

“These are areas with no service at all or very limited access,” said Davin Peterson, executive director of Base Technology. “A lot of these are way out of town.”

The company had done similar work in the Pemberton area in 2010, as well as a pilot project in Squamish. The work will also include bringing this infrastructure up to date.

“Everyone actually watches TV over the Internet,” he said, noting this act requires the service to be 10 times faster.
