PRiS Webmail
PRiS has been providing rural internet services throughout Northern BC's Peace Region for 23 years. Based in Dawson Creek, we are a registered not-for-profit society with almost 2000 members. We use a combination of fixed wireless, ADSL and fibre solutions to provide our members with reliable and affordable internet services. The society operates under a constitution, with bylaws, and is accountable through an elected board of directors. All revenue generated by PRIS is used to further the goals of the Society. Dawson Creek, BC - January 4, 2017 - PRiS has now equipped the utility towers across Saddle Hills County, AB with Wireless Internet Equipment. Wireless services have been on-line in the Baytree, Gundy and Bonanza communities since the fall of 2016. With the balance of the towers on-line as of December 2016, reliable, wireless internet service is now available to all residents of the county including Silver Valley, Blueberry Mountain, Woking and Gordandale. More information about the Saddle Hills County towers locations can be found at http://www.saddlehills.ab.ca/cms/One.aspx?portalId=212284&pageId=5503749 PRiS, a Not For Profit Society, will offer a free wireless connection to one local community centre at each tower site, while offering competitively priced wireless internet packages to local county residents and businesses. More information about Peace Region Internet Society can be found at www.pris.ca Spokesperson, Naomi Muise states "A funding partnership between PRiS, Saddle Hills County, Industry Canada and The .CA Community Investment Program have made these installations possible and provide an excellent example of what can be accomplished when community partners work together with local government to overcome remote location challenges such as connectivity, specific to many northern communities". PRiS Thrilled to Offer Wireless Internet Service to Bay Tree, Bonanza and Gundy Regions Thanks to a grant from CIRA, under their Community Investment Program, PRiS has equipped three towers in Saddle Hills County, AB with Wireless Internet Equipment. A spokesperson from PRiS states "It is expected that these installations will make reliable, high speed wireless internet connectivity possible for all community members in the targeted areas, even if they are surrounded by dense forest. Our first member, also a PRiS staff, has already signed up for service in the Gundy Region and is available to share her experience by calling 250-782-5128". PRiS, a Not For Profit Society, will offer a free wireless hotspot connection at the Gundy Community Hall so that local residents can test the signal quality and speed performance for themselves. PRiS spokesperson Naomi Muise states, "many residents have experienced a lot of frustration trying to set-up or maintain internet service with other providers in the past and we at PRiS want them to know we stand behind our service". PRiS Technical Administrator Chris Lavoie states, "At PRiS, we work hard to ensure that our service is always consistent and doesn't slow down during peak hours. We are very careful not to overload our towers and we only setup new accounts when we know the signal quality will meet our standards." More information about PRiS, it's services and rates can be found at www.pris.ca by e-mail at pris@pris.ca or by calling 1-800-768-3311 CIRA's Community Investment Program is building a better online Canada one project at a time and to date has supported 78 innovative projects across Canada totaling $3.2 million. PRiS is thrilled to have been selected as a recipient in this year's funding. For more information about the Community Investment Program visit https://cira.ca/community-investment-program 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. PRiS will be offering new high speed 3.65ghz WiMax services in select rural areas.
