Much of rural Ontario doesn’t have that option, no fibre optic cables running by my place, there’s not even a gas line.
We’re not really that far from the nearest town, it’s only about a 10 minute drive. The fibre installation was interesting though. There were two different companies trying to sign up customers and the second one assured us that they were the only ones who had the contract with the township to install the cables; that was a load of crap. We went with the first, a local farmer who was tired of the slow internet access and decided to start his own company to provide service for himself and his neighbours. He was honest from the start and has provided great service with prices a lot lower than the opposition, a huge national company. Sometimes it just takes one person to get things moving.
