Our Modernization Plan
Building a more connected North
In 2013, Northwestel embarked on its most ambitious plan to upgrade telecommunications in Canada’s North. The goal of the five year Modernization Plan is to provide customers with unprecedented access to faster speeds, new features and better service — all designed to bring them closer to what matters most. Through the Modernization Plan, we have, and will continue to make, major investments that result in a more connected North.
274 Modernization Plan upgrades were completed by the end of 2015, exceeding initial targets
63% of Northerners can connect to the Internet faster and more reliably today than in 2013
With our partners at Bell, we’re bringing the best-available wireless service to the North
89% of Northerners can now use the latest technology to call, text, browse & connect in ways never before possible
