Over the past 20 years, the Internet has brought us incredible benefits, forever changing the world and the way we interact with it. We can stay in touch with friends and loved ones the world over through email, social networks, and Skype. We can work from home, coffee shops, hotel rooms, freeing us from the confines of the same four walls every day.
We can entertain ourselves with video games, movies, and TV shows, all at the touch of a button, or even through voice command. We can stream global events and sport in real-time, joining in on the excitement and action a world away. We can turn on and off lights in our homes, unlock the door, and turn up the heat – before we’ve even arrived. We can bank and shop online, have food delivered, make charitable donations, even volunteer, all from the comfort of home.
The Internet has changed our vocabulary – imagine explaining a hashtag, or selfie, even LOL to someone in 1985. The way we access the Internet continues to evolve as well. Although many of us still use a laptop or desktop computer for online activities such as banking and email, more and more are shifting to mobile devices to engage in social media and stream video and audio, at home or on the go.
We are incredibly lucky to have access to Internet service in most parts of our country. In fact, Canadians spend an average of 36.7 hours online each month – more than any other country! 88% of Canadians connect to the Internet, which means we are sharing the infrastructure with a lot of people – which can, in some areas, mean slow speeds and downtime. The solution? A high-speed provider that keeps it’s technology up to date, to keep pace with demand. A provider that offers fast speeds, reliable service, customer support based in Canada, and no-nonsense pricing.
With Uniserve, there is no fine print – like an introductory price that increases after 6 months on a fixed term. We still offer Internet plans with no contracts, no data caps, Vancouver-based customer service – and our low price is what you pay, period.
