ACCESS TO FIBRE INTERNET IN ALBERTA IS MORE THAN STREAMING MOVIES — IT’S ABOUT OUR QUALITY OF LIFE AND ECONOMIC PROSPERITY.  NEXT UP: FORT MACLEOD

Imagine your day without access to high-speed Internet. How often do we need to check our inboxes, research information, review our health records, or eyeball the daily news and business headlines as they break?  

Streaming movies, communicating with friends and family, and checking social media is part of what we consider to be the perks of being connected to the online world; but freedom to information and education is why Internet access is core to our society and economy. This spring 2016, the United Nations went as far as calling access to the Internet a human right.

The “I” in Internet of Things and What It Means for Your Business

 

The Internet of Things is on its way to becoming the Internet of Everything. Smart thermostats, wearables and smart cars are all IoT features that are here to stay, and there are many more to come. According to Business Insider, by 2020, there will be 34 billion connected devices in use. And that’s a conservative estimate.

The other thing about the IoT is that the ‘I’ part of it is vital. Those 34 billion devices are useless without the Internet to provide connectivity.
