Sturgeon County Access Agreement

Sign your DIGITAL access agreement! 

Northern Lights Fiber is so excited to provide you super-fast and reliable internet. But first, our project partners at Canadian Fiber Optics (www.CanadianFiberOptics.ca) need to build brand new infrastructure to your home!

To do this, we need your permission through a document called an Access Agreement! This access agreement is just a document stating that you give permission for new fiber infrastructure to be built to your home.

You can now digitally sign this access agreement by HERE. It’s super easy to do, but don’t forget to confirm it (by the confirmation email it sends you).

But what if I don’t need better internet?

Even if you do not immediately want better internet, consider signing an Access Agreement as it benefits you greatly in the long term! The advantages of replacing the old infrastructure (copper, coaxial, or wireless) are UNLIMITED.

Fiber will bring you faster service

It’s always important to prepare your home for what you may actually need in the future! By signing the access agreement, you can ensure that you are not denied new connectivity and modern services. Modern technology has an increasing demand for high speed internet access – fiber ensures you have access when you need it.

It will save you money

There is no charge to bring this infrastructure to your home! And if you need better (or more affordable) service in the future, there could be a charge associated with building this infrastructure to your home at a later date.

And if you sign up with us, our services feature unlimited data, with no speed throttling. This means when you sign up for one of our packages, we will never charge you extra just for using it, saving you money on data overages.

It will add value to your home

Should you decide to sell in the future. A fiber connection in rural Alberta is extremely rare and sought after by todays younger, more tech savvy buyers. This will ensure that future owners of your home will have an attractive access to the latest technology for decades to come. Don’t believe us? Ask your realtor!

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss this agreement with one of our customer representatives, please contact us at 1-888-236-2947.

Is Starlink Right for Rural Communities?

Is Starlink Right for Rural Communities?

When it comes to Elon Musk, Xpay.com, Tesla Inc., and SpaceX are just a few brainchildren, and the latter was founded in 2002 with the mind-boggling goal to colonize space. No matter how you may feel about him, you’ve certainly got to hand it to Musk: when it comes to ideas, the sky truly is the limit! This brings us to the matter at hand: In 2019, SpaceX announced its latest projects, one of which was Starlink. But what exactly is Starlink? And is it really everything it’s cracked up to be?

 

What Is Starlink?

Satellite internet technology has been around for decades. Internet connectivity is transmitted by radio waves emitted by satellites orbiting thousands of miles above the Earth’s atmosphere. Those radio waves are received by ground stations and then sent right into your home. Plenty of people already use satellites to connect their homes to the internet.

For example, one of the leading satellite internet providers, HughesNet, has satellites that sit 22,000 miles above the Earth. Starlink will also be a satellite internet service, but the company is proposing low-orbiting satellites that operate only 300 miles above the surface. This translates to improved internet speeds and reduced latency when compared to other satellite providers. Moreover, SpaceX plans to launch a fleet of these satellites in the coming years. There will be as many as 40,000 new satellites arranged in what the corporation refers to as a ‘constellation.

 

Satellite Internet Challenges

Getting Starlink in your home starts with a hefty investment right off the bat. The initial $500 (US Dollars!) fee gets you the satellite dish and the Wi-Fi router, and you can expect to pay $99 (USD!) per month for internet services. Compare that to Northern Lights Fiber’s $89.99 (Canadian Dollars!) for a symmetrical 100Mbps! Not only that, our service currently scales to 10,000Mbps (that’s almost 1,000x faster than what many residents get today)!

 

Choose Reliability and Scalability

These days, reliable internet is more important than ever, especially for those living in rural areas. It helps keep us connected, employed, and entertained. Interrupted connectivity—even a short one—can make a world of difference for those who depend on it. While Starlink will be a welcome option for customers who only have traditional satellite internet—or none at all—it simply can’t compare to the reliability of fiber internet.

For guaranteed fast, reliable, and affordable internet services, fiber infrastructure from Canadian Fiber Optics and Northern Lights Fiber is the way to go.
