How It Works

Delivering affordable internet services to business and residential customers.

How CRadvantage works

CRadvantage is a fibre optic network infrastructure upon which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will be able to deliver affordable internet services to business and residential customers. The network will be connected to integrated buildings, businesses, and multi-residential developments. ISPs will lease access to the network from the City of Campbell River, which will maintain the fibre optic network architecture. By providing this infrastructure, the City of Campbell River will be fostering a marketplace in which ISPs will compete for customers and have incentive to innovate with less potential for monopolistic pricing to emerge.
