INTERNET IN CANADA

Internet in Canada is extremely popular and widely available, both in the home and in various wireless hotspots in public places. Over 28 million people, or 84% of the population of Canada, have or use the Internet on a regular basis.

If you have your own computer, broadband DSL and cable Internet are available in most of the country, excepting only the most rural and isolated of areas. Wireless routers are popular, particularly for people with laptops, and can be purchased either from electronics stores or from your Internet provider. Many coffee-shops and other public environments such as hotels and government buildings provide wireless access to visitors and customers.

Schools, colleges and universities will have Internet-capable computers for students to use. The public library will also have computers with Internet access, as well as providing wireless access for those with laptop computers.
