We can't believe we're the only ones unable to access high speed internet south of Hamilton, Ontario. Are you in Brant, Wentworth or Haldimand counties and are sick of no reliable high speed internet?  Please join our petition to convince Rogers or Bell to extend their service.

We have been living at the far east end of Brant county, just south of Wentworth county and also very close to Haldimand for 8 years now, and can only be serviced by one small internet company that I will not name.

We finally reached the end of our rope with years of extremely unreliable and weak service from that company. Numerous service calls to our house would result in minor changes that perhaps improved things slightly, for a short time. Finally the company told us that "tall trees" were preventing a strong signal--trees that belong to numerous other neighbours and obviously can't be removed. Their solution? Raising a tower on our property for a minimum of $1000.00 and possibly as high as 5 grand! 

The CRTC claims that high speed internet should be available to all Canadians, and yet they have ignored our plea for help.

Finally we have resorted to adding another cell phone to our plan with Rogers and use this as a hotspot, which we tether our house internet to.  The cost is ridiculous but we have no choice.  We have 5 children, most of them teenagers, who require the internet for school and other pursuits. My husband and I both require internet for our jobs and school. I finally had to leave my online teaching job because the internet was just not strong enough.

Our society is past the point of internet being a luxury. It's a necessity. 

I've only heard rumors that there are others in our area with the same problem, like our immediate neighbours, and friends and acquaintances in neighbouring towns and cities like Ancaster and Six Nations.

If you too are fed up with poor or extravagantly priced internet because the "big" companies don't service you, and you are in Brant, Wentworth, Haldimand counties or Six Nations, please sign our petition to make a change!
