Woodstock, NB – Launching the next phase of its transformation, Xplore Inc. announced today that its 5G Home Internet service is now available to more homes and businesses across the country. Effective immediately, Canadians in select communities across Manitoba, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland can experience fast, reliable connections that allow them to make the most of rural living.

Built with state-of-the-art equipment from Ericsson, Xplore’s 5G Home Internet represents a game-changing opportunity for rural Canadians to connect without compromise. The new service – built from the ground up as Canada’s first rural standalone 5G network – provides download speeds up to 100 Mbps.

“This is a huge day for Xplore – and for our customers and potential customers,” said Dennis Steiger, Chief Technology Officer, Xplore Inc. “We built this new 5G network from scratch to better serve rural Canadians and provide them with fast, reliable connectivity – so they can work, play and learn online in rural areas across the country.”

“We’re thrilled to be a part of Xplore’s drive to close the digital divide by connecting more rural Canadians with Ericsson’s state-of-the-art 5G technologies,” said Jeanette Irekvist, Vice President and Head of Customer Unit, Ericsson Canada. “Better networks with increased capacity, speed and coverage will help rural Canadian participate fully in the digital economy and create prosperity no matter where they decide to live and work.”

Meanwhile, as part of its relentless pursuit of an improved broadband experience for rural Canadians, Xplore continues to deploy and expand a fibre-to-the-premises network across the country.
