Xplore is working relentlessly to expand our 100% pure fibre and 5G wireless Home Internet services to rural communities across Canada. Until we bring these technologies to some of the hard-to-reach rural communities, we are launching next-generation satellite technology, JUPITERTM 3, to provide these areas with an improved Internet experience.

Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps¹ and improved quality of service.

The JUPITER™ 3 Ultra High Density satellite will double Xplore’s existing capacities. This means packages with up to 4 times higher speeds1, huge data buckets and improved service.

Professional Installation and truly local support.

Xplore is committed to stand by you and your community wherever you are. Our local professional technicians will provide a full-service install and our 24/7, Canadian-based technical support staff will be ready to answer any of your questions.

Deployed with our current Xplore Satellite users in mind.

If you are an existing Xplore satellite internet user, you will be the first to know about the new packages and also take advantage of special offers and incentives at launch.

No upfront hardware costs2. Outstanding value and choice of flexible monthly plans.

On launch, you will be able to choose between new Satellite packages with great value at very competitive prices. And you won’t have to pay a fortune for the hardware!


JUPITER™ 3 is geo-synchronous satellite, which means it stays in orbit far away from earth and covers a large area. JUPITER™ 3 is going to be the largest commercial GEO satellite in the world, with a total capacity higher than the previous JUPITER™ satellites combined. Xplore’s booked capacity for Canadian customers makes for the single largest reservation of bandwidth from this satellite.

Xplore is choosing a low impact solution in GEO technology. It is a proven technology that allows us to offer cost effective Internet service to more areas in Canada as we work on ultimately covering these areas with superior Fibre & 5G connections.
