PRiS Thrilled to Offer Wireless Internet Service to Bay Tree, Bonanza and Gundy Regions
Thanks to a grant from CIRA, under their Community Investment Program, PRiS has equipped three towers in Saddle Hills County, AB with Wireless Internet Equipment. A spokesperson from PRiS states “It is expected that these installations will make reliable, high speed wireless internet connectivity possible for all community members in the targeted areas, even if they are surrounded by dense forest. Our first member, also a PRiS staff, has already signed up for service in the Gundy Region and is available to share her experience by calling 250-782-5128”.
PRiS, a Not For Profit Society, will offer a free wireless hotspot connection at the Gundy Community Hall so that local residents can test the signal quality and speed performance for themselves. PRiS spokesperson Naomi Muise states, “many residents have experienced a lot of frustration trying to set-up or maintain internet service with other providers in the past and we at PRiS want them to know we stand behind our service”. PRiS Technical Administrator Chris Lavoie states, “At PRiS, we work hard to ensure that our service is always consistent and doesn’t slow down during peak hours. We are very careful not to overload our towers and we only setup new accounts when we know the signal quality will meet our standards.”
CIRA’s Community Investment Program is building a better online Canada one project at a time and to date has supported 78 innovative projects across Canada totaling $3.2 million. PRiS is thrilled to have been selected as a recipient in this year’s funding. For more information about the Community Investment Program visit https://cira.ca/community-investment-program
