Welcome to First Broadband. Our vision and mission is to contribute to the sustainability of rural and remote communities anywhere in the world by connecting them to the digital world sooner, more easily, and with greater scalability than otherwise possible. In addition to enabling economic independence, we believe in the critical importance of providing reliable access to health, education, government, and social resources.
We deliver fixed wireless technology that is designed specifically to deliver critical Internet service in areas where connecting communities has proven challenging because of location, topography and widely-distributed population.
Local projects, local control
Our deployment projects enable and encourage local ownership and operation of a communications system that not only delivers critical Internet services but also promotes job creation, introduces new skillsets and ultimately contributes to the sustainability of the community and its culture.
Our experience and strength
First Broadband has made significant investments over many years developing wireless Internet technology and building wireless Internet infrastructure in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.
We have been operating as an Internet service provider within rural communities in Western Canada since 2007. Our commercial deployments, our numerous spectrum licences and our focus on operating in areas with connectivity challenges provide us with a unique proving ground for the technology and the operating practices that we have specifically developed to make it possible to deliver Internet where others either cannot or will not.
Our headquarters are in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and as a wholly-owned subsidiary of M.I.K. Industries with significant operations in Canada, Malaysia, China and the USA, we have the financial strength and global reach to deliver on our promises.
Partnering to bridge the digital divide
We are ready to partner with individuals, governments, companies, and other organizations who share our vision of bridging the digital divide for the people, families and communities that need it most and building a better future for everyone.
Please join us in our effort to meet the Global Connectivity Challenge.
