Network as a Service (NaaS) provides network design and installation.  Connect operates the network, manages the fibre and power relationships, develops Internet data plans with the community, and shares revenues with the Town.



The network management includes building the network using local contractors, hiring local technical staff, developing customer service and support, marketing, invoicing, and scheduling installations for homes and businesses.



Connect ensures a consistent managed wireless service delivering up to one Gig of data to every home and business.

When communities request a wired solution, Connect will design and build the fibre to the home (FTTH) network, operate for the community, and revenue share.



A wireless project starts with an onsite site survey and assessment of pole access with the utility provider. Once this is complete, Connect installs the network and completes testing and modifications to make sure every home and business can access the network.

A wired project starts with a fibre design and requesting quotes from fiber installation providers.



Customers can log in from their home or office, create their account and pay for the service by credit card, EFT, or debit.



The Connect network engineering team will manage the wholesale fiber requirements and microwave backhaul relationships to ensure Internet consistency as the network grows.



The Connect network operation center will monitor networks 24/7 and provide support for service calls, supply AP unit software upgrades, and install spectrum advancements as they come available. Connect will train the communities for service, sales, and administration of the network.


Can Our Community Create a Pilot to Test The Connect Mobility Network?

Yes and here are a few ideas for preparing a pilot in your community:

  1. We recommend Installing the pilot where you can easily access fibre for the network. If your community already has fibre services, request additional bandwidth on your existing fibre capacity. Ask the fibre provider for a month-to-month billing option for the pilot term.
  2. We can install the access points on a few local buildings and connect them to community-operated properties during the pilot.
  3. If the community owns light or power poles, this will speed up the installation and lower the cost of deployment.
  4. If you have a busy arena in your community, installing an access point in the arena is a great way to introduce the service to your community.
  5. If fibre service is already in place, this can be completed in a day.

What Advantage Will Our Community Receive With The Connect Solution?

Every home and business will have the ability to access 1,000 Mbps of data and the data delivered will be the same as what the customer purchased. WiFi can be added to every location throughout the community plus cameras and weather stations can also be added.
