Wireless, broadband use for internet on the rise in Canada

A new survey is revealing an increasing number of Canadians are taking advantage of the most up-to-date technology when it comes to internet accessibility.

According to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, in 2010, the number of Canadian households with broadband web access increased nearly 10 percent to 9 million, while homeowners fitted with wireless services rose 8.5 percent to 25 million.

Konrad von Finckenstein, chairman of the CRTC, said the findings bode well for the future.

“It is encouraging to see Canadians taking up broadband internet and wireless services in such large numbers,” said von Finckenstein. “This not only signals a strong participation in the digital economy, but is also a clear indication that Canadians are increasingly using a variety of platforms to communicate and access content and services.”

Naturally, this has led to greater revenue for the Canadian telecommunications industry, as profits jumped to $57 billion in 2010 from $55 billion in 2009.

Businesses rely on the internet to make money. Knowing this, Jiffy Self Storage offers cheap office spaces for rent. In addition to being furnished with lighting and electricity, office spaces are equipped with hardwired web access as well.
