Cybertech outfit enters PR Internet service race major factor to people having complaints about their service,” he said, adding that Truespeed will have no such “traffic mana- gement” policy and that the company has its own separate bandwidth under licence from Industry Canada and so will be able to offer clients 25 megabytes-per-second service when it has its LTE system set up. Counties council members welcome McGregor’s presentation though Mayor Pierre Leroux of Russell Township noted that the company will have tomake separate presentations to each municipal council regarding access to local water towers for its signal relays. HawkesburyMayor Jeanne Charlebois expressed support for Truespeed and promised to get McGregor in touch with her town’s fire chief, who is responsible for the water tower. “We are open for business,” Charlebois said.


A Brockville-based cyber tech service company is making a bid to become one of, if not the biggest, Internet provider service in EasternOntario. Truespeed Internet Services is starting its move with approaches to the counties council and other local municipal governments for space on municipal water towers and other high-rise infrastructure for its transmission signals. Adam McGregor, Truespeed company president, pitched the company’s IP service for residents in the United Counties of Pres- cott-Russell (UCPR) during a presentation at the May 11 meeting of counties council. McGregor emphasize during his presenta- tion that the company is not asking for either the counties or any municipality to invest money in the company’s IP service project for Prescott-Russell. “We are not asking a penny from you,” he said, adding that what Truespeed seeks are partnership agreements to use existing municipal water towers and similar high- rise infrastructure as sites for the company’s radio transmitter systems. Truespeed’s plan for entering the IP ser- vice competition in Prescott-Russell already “The peak hours policy is probably the major factor to people having complaints about their service.” – Adam McGregor includes setting up at least half a dozen pri- vate radio towers for its LTE relay system, which McGregor said is a superior wireless Internet delivery system because the LTE signal can go through buildings and trees. Ordinary wireless service needs a clear line- of-sight setup and may be blocked by trees or large buildings. The UCPR has been part of the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) project, launched through the Eastern OntarioWar- dens Caucus (EOWC) through partnerships with the federal and provincial governments and the private sector. The goal of EORN was to improve broadband Internet service in Eastern Ontario and reduce or eliminate the “cyber holes” in the region’s information superhighway as well as make high-speed Internet service available tomore parts of the region. Prior to EORN, many rural sectors of Eastern Ontario either had no Internet service available or were limited to slower dial-up service through their home tele- phone lines. Some of the smaller urban areas also had limited access to high-speed service which is now an essential part of successful business operations. McGregor said that even though EORN has improved the Internet access situation for Prescott-Russell, it is still not perfect because of what he called the “traffic ma- nagement” policy of some IP outfits, which imposes limitations on the speed of Inter- net service during daytime hours when the majority of users are online. “The peak hours policy is probably the
