Putting local first

With an unmatched commitment to area business, Start.ca internet and hosting services connect your business to a world of possibility

WHEN YOU HEAR the expression “go local”, internet service may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Perhaps it should be though… and not just for the reasons you might think.

Internet services provider Start.ca has been based in London for 25 years, and as such, their commitment to the Forest City is unmatched by any of the big networks or other providers outside the region.

Even as demand for high-speed internet services across Ontario continues to grow, the company has remained dedicated to putting the needs of London businesses and residents first. In 2015, they started building a fibre network as a way to bring high-speed internet access to underserved business regions like Wilton Grove and out towards the airport. Due to high demand, what started as a pilot project become something much bigger.
