Dawson Creek, BC - The Government of Canada announced that $278,000 in funding will be made available to PRiS for providing 5.0 Mbps internet services to over 2000 homes throughout Northern BC's Peace Region. This funding is made available as part of the Connecting Canadians program, a $305 million initiative to improve internet services for all rural Canadians.
PRiS is a not-for-profit society dedicated to providing rural high-speed internet services throughout the Peace Region.
...
As part of this project, PRiS intends to have 5.0 Mbps services available to nearly 1000 homes by the end of 2015, with another 1000 homes over the following two years. Installation of the new services will be available for both new and existing PRiS members starting in January 2016.
WiMax 3.5ghz/3.65ghz Services Starting in September 2015, PRiS will begin deploying a fixed wireless solution on our existing towers to provide 650 rural homes in the Peace Region with new 5.0 Mbps internet services. This solution has superior speed, signal and range to any other comparable WiMax/LTE/4G product available on the market today, and has nearly ten times the capacity of our existing 2.4ghz wireless systems. With this solution we can quickly upgrade a large portion of our existing members to the improved 5.0 Mbps services.
New Microcell Deployments Over the next three years, PRiS will provide 1350 homes with 5.0 Mbps internet services by deploying forty-two Microcells throughout the Peace Region. Microcells are 'nodes' which use utility poles equipped with high-speed wireless hardware to provide internet services to a relatively small area with 15 or more homes. Each Microcell has very high capacity and upgrade potential, giving PRiS the flexibility of providing services well into the future. Over the past two years, PRiS has installed twenty of these Microcells, which are now providing 400 members with 5.0 Mbps or greater internet services.

When you join PRIS, you become a member of a society with over 6,000 members. It is run by you through an elected Board of Directors . All revenue generated by PRIS is used to further the goals of the Society. Unlike many of the larger companies we have not forgotten that our community is primarily rural, and we are striving to ensure that broadband access is available to all. While competing technologies such as ADSL and Cable meet the needs of people within the larger urban centers, true Broadband Internet can only be delivered to rural residents via wireless radio.
Here is how our Society works: Once a year, usually in the autumn, PRIS holds an Annual General Meeting.
...
The day to day operations of PRIS are managed by seven staff members.
PRIS is a member of the BC Community Connectivity Coop or BC3 for short. The BC is a non-profit society representing the interests of the Internet industry in British Columbia.
PRIS is also a member of the Canadian Association of Internet Providers.
PRIS also wishes to acknowledge the assistance of the following businesses, for their assistance in letting people know about the PRIS services, and for assisting new members in starting memberships:
By design, PRIS does not make a 'profit'. Those who have joined more recently may be surprised by this. Aren't Internet Service Providers usually business entities striving to cash in big on the burgeoning Information Technology explosion? Isn't this the world of Sympatico, AOL, ATT, Ma Bell and other giants?... Well, it wasn't always like that. Read on for the history of PRiS .
