In a move that will bring much needed access to internet for remote and rural communities in Canada, Toronto Star recently reported that Elon Musk has some competition for high-speed internet over Canada’s northern skies in Galaxy Broadband.
Galaxy Broadband, a Canadian-based company, has teamed up with UK-based OneWeb, to provide low-orbit satellite internet service that will help to bridge the digital divide in Canada. Galaxy Broadband is helping to connect remote and rural communities to the internet.
Particularly noteworthy is the fact that Galaxy Broadband has already started rolling out in Nunavut, according to Galaxy founder and CEO Rick Hodgkinson. This is a major step forward for the people of Nunavut, who have long struggled with limited access to reliable internet. With the help of Galaxy Broadband, people in the region will have access to high-speed internet that can help them stay connected to the world, allowing them to access online services, educational resources, and communication tools.
They are also targeting to connect 25 more communities by the end of the year.
This news comes on the heels of Starlink introducing a data cap for Canadian users. It’s likely that Galaxy Broadband will be able to provide some much-needed competition in the market, and the people of Canada’s northern regions stand to benefit significantly.
Galaxy Broadband is hoping to revolutionize internet access in Canada’s remote and rural areas, and their arrival is sure to be a welcome development for those living in these regions. With the partnership with OneWeb, Galaxy Broadband is sure to make a big impact in the Canadian satellite internet market.
