Internet services in Alberta

Learn how internet access works in Alberta.


The Alberta government has been working to make high-speed internet access possible for all Alberta homes and businesses.

Delivery of Internet access from telecommunications backbone infrastructure remains the responsibility of local Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Alberta has a competitive environment for providing Internet services in rural areas. Outside of urban areas, this is accomplished primarily through Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

  • there are more than 45 Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) in the province
  • some areas have as many as 4 or 5 WISPs providing service, while other, more remote locations have only one
