Broadband (Internet) Service

Access to the Internet is growing very quickly in Nova Scotia, and is fast becoming an important part of daily life. You can find Internet access at schools, cafes, at work, on home computers, the library, government sponsored C@P sites and more. C@P sites are located in public libraries and provide free access to computers and the Internet. In some populous areas you may access wireless “hot-spots” that allow you to surf the Internet using a laptop with a wireless card.

Home Internet service is offered by a variety of companies called Internet Service Providers (ISP’s for short). Monthly fees are usually charged for Internet access. A variety of connection types are offered from dial-up (using your telephone line) to broadband (high-speed Internet content is delivered through a cable). In most cases, your Internet connection will come with e-mail accounts and other add-ons included. If you have multiple computers in your home, you may use an Internet router to share access to a single Internet connection.

To find ISP’s in your area, check the Community Profiles section.
