What is an alternative internet provider? To put it simply, we mean an internet provider that isn’t one of the big guns in the trade that we’ve all heard of. The main players in the internet world own most of the internet cabling that travels through the country.
Several years ago, the CRTC (the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission) ruled that these main players had to rent out their wires to smaller, third-party companies to level out the playing field. Although the large providers offer great services, choosing a lesser-known internet provider also has its advantages. They often offer cheaper internet plans or uncapped deals. Especially if you are moving, it is recommended to compare internet plans and pricing available at your address. You may find a better suited option for your household.
