Internet coverage for rural areas

If you live in the heart of Ottawa, you’ll likely have options from cable, DSL, and fiber-optic internet providers. For those in rural areas or just outside Ottawa, however, satellite or fixed wireless internet may be the best internet option.

HughesNet starting prices are significantly higher than average in Ottawa at $59.99/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps. Viasat starting prices are higher than average in Ottawa at $50/mo. for speeds up to 25 Mbps.

Fixed wireless service is less likely to come with the high latency of satellite internet, but monthly data limits can still be an issue compared to Ottawa cable, DSL, and fiber-optic internet providers.

You are unlikely, however, to find multiple providers of the same internet type, such as two cable providers, in the same location because operating expenses in an area already served by another provider can be too high to be profitable.

Monthly costs for internet can range from $20 to $60, depending on which providers are available in your area. Added fees for Wi-Fi service and equipment can add to that cost, but your internet provider may give you the option to use your own router, which can lower the monthly internet cost.
