Are you not getting the internet speed you require? Here’s what you can do about it.

Getting an internet service plan that delivers what’s needed can be a challenge for many Canadians. Criticizing our Internet Service Providers (ISPs) has practically become a second national sport in this country, and it can be difficult to cut through the noise to truly understand what might affect the quality of someone’s internet connection.

In reality, a number of things affect internet access and performance quality: a simple lack of options; cost; old or inadequate infrastructure delivering the service; and even factors within the subscriber’s own home all play a role in this frustrating situation.

Wonder if you should be getting more from your service? Running a test through CIRA’s Internet Performance Test is a good place to start.

After running a test, join us on Thursday, December 1, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. ET for CIRA’s final meetup of the year. We’ve invited a diverse group of experts to discuss the need for speed—what affects your internet performance, plus practical things you can do to improve internet speeds at your home or business.

Register now to attend our virtual event. Attendance is free, but you must RSVP to join.

Why participate?

#1 Get informed: our speakers are excited to share their expertise and tips for improving internet speeds no matter where you’re located in the country.

#2 Have your questions answered: we’ve dedicated time to discuss questions you might have. During the meetup, use the Slido tool to pose your questions or upvote those that you wish to see answered.

#3 Q&A with CIRA leaders: CIRA members are invited to stay on for 30 minutes immediately following the discussion for an ask-me-anything segment with CIRA team members Jeff Buell, IPT Program Manager and Tanya O’Callaghan, VP Community Investment, Policy and Advocacy. Dive deeper into CIRA’s efforts around infrastructure investments and the goals of our Internet Performance Test. Stay tuned as we address your questions, live!
