High Speed Internet

Tower over Satelitte

There are two services available for high speed internet connections in the Bracebridge area. Only one (satellite system) is available down Fraserburg road.

The satellite system from Xplornet.com costs $800.00 to get set-up through their Muskoka provider (Muskoka.com). You buy a satellite dish and a modem unit that plugs into your computer, I believe the dish will face the same direction as your satellite TV dishes. The services start at $55.00/mo. for a basic mail box of 50MB, 128Kbps uploading speed and downloading speed of 512Kbps. My dial-up runs at 44Kps., which means I should expect sending messages to be almost 3 times faster and receiving messages almost 12 times faster. I would need to up the mail box limit because my son sends me pictures of my grandson that can be greater than 50MB at times which I would assume would be rejected by the incoming server because my mailbox would be constantly full.

The other is a tower system offer through Candelight.ca. They cannot service us presently because we are not in range of the existing tower. They say if we could get 25 people who would interested in the service by e-mailing them of their interest, they would propose a tower for the area. Their costs are around $400.00 to get set-up and presently the service starts at $45.00/mo. for 15GB of system mailbox. Their speeds are much faster as well, boasting upload and download speeds of 3.0Mbs. Again, my dial-up runs at 44Kps. which means I would receive and send almost 680 times faster (hope the math is right) than what I do now.

So what do people think? Can I talk anyone into sending off an e-mail to Candlelight saying they would be interested in having high speed tower service?

Let everyone know your thoughts, add your comments onto this publishing.

Thanks
Don

I must say i would be interested. I have priced out the satellite internet from Xplornet and it is very costly for what you are getting. They also have a download cap (“Xplornet does not have a cap on what can be downloaded with our KA package, however telestat does have a maximum band width that is allowed, the package you pick determines what the bandwidth allowed will be.”) and I think it’s under 200mb for their $56 plan before they cut your speed. To get up and running on satellite internet the cost is just over $1000, that's with the purchase and install of the equipment. And there is no self install option. It HAS to be installed by Muskoka.com says Xplornet. There are a couple other satellite internet providers, however Xplorenet is the cheapest.

$1,000.00, Wy too much for us. I have a return e-mail from Candelight which I have copied onthe bototm of this comment.

We tested your location with our software analysis program.
Unfortunately there is no service available at your location at this time. I
have added your contact info to our database for future reference. We will
contact you when we plan to expand into your area. If you know of any other
people interested in service please have them click the link below as this
will help drive service into your area.

http://www.candlelight.ca/inquiry.shtml

ALSO; A couple of questions and answers.

1/ What are the estimated incoming and outgoing speeds of communication?

Depending on the account up to 3.0Mbs or up to 5.0Mbs



2/ Can an individual buy the equipment (how much) and install it

themselves (with instructions)?

No, the equipment belongs to Candlelight and can only be installed by one of our installers.



3/ What warranty is on the equipment? (specifically the unit hooked to

the computer)?

Candlelight Communications, Inc owns the equipment. The customer is responsible and is to protect the equipment from lightning, power surges or any other damage that can happen outside of Candlelight’s control.



4/ If I buy another dish can I take my unit back and forth to the

cottage or other location without increase system costs? How much?

The service is radio wave and not satellite. Candlelight installs a receiver at your premises. This receiver communicates with one of our Access Points in your area, and therefore cannot be moved from one location to another.



5/ What is the activation fee?

Basic installation is $399.95 The basic installation is for the installation of the customer equipment, antenna and cable run only. The basic installation does not include additional labour for computer configuration, network configuration or other labour fees. It does not include additional hardware requirements, although the site survey may recommend a high gain antenna and additional hardware if required, in some instances it may not be known until installation is completed if a high gain antenna will be required. All additional hardware or labour must be approved before completion of work.



6/ Are there longer contract periods which could reduce the monthly cost

and activation fees?

No the contract period is 1 year.

My wife and i got ecstatic when Chris managed to carry out his inquiry with the ideas he got through your

And we also take into account we have the writer to be grateful to for that. The type of illustrations you have made, the easy blog menu, the relationships you can make it easier to engender - it's mostly extraordinary, and it's really facilitating our son in addition to our family do think the subject matter is interesting, which is certainly rather pressing. Many thanks for everything!
