About our Internet System
In 2013 – the community got together and voted to use funds from the Ashlu Creek Foundation to build the necessary infrastructure to create a wireless bridge between the USV and town. This would allow access to terrestrial (as opposed to satellite) signal- in effect we built our own telecommunication system for delivering high speed internet!
Given the small population base of the USV, the prohibitive cost of initial infrastructure made it unfeasible to have a business plan that would attract any ISP; the big players would not entertain our enquiries or even return our calls. Only through working with a smaller, independent, forward thinking contractor were we able to jointly put together a project that would succeed. ACF paid for the initial infrastructure , with some assistance and support from CIRA, (towers, radios, etc) and Base Wireless did the installation and provided infrastructure in town.
They continue to manage the signal delivery, subscriptions and all operations.

Upgrades and Future Plans
Base Wireless continues to explore avenues for expansion in the Squamish Area- and for the SVN – we are hoping to partner with them again to get access to the fibre signal that runs through Squamish. That would result in almost unlimited bandwidth and lightning speeds….watch this space!
