  • Ginwat Cable-TV — a First Mile project from 1999 | FirstMile
    troubleshoot Those two would come in and put things back together before I could ask them how they would do it They enjoyed problems Onto the I Way Last year Ginwat Cable decided it was time to go cable Internet The local telco Telebec had long promised its telephone version but to this day does not offer local dialup Menarick heard that Cancom was experimenting with a 2 way satellite Internet service and convinced them to sign up Ginwat The service was costly some 55 000 in uplink and downlink VSAT Comstream hardware receivers Cisco routers and servers almost 2 000 in monthly fees and nearly 500 per Zenith modem however the alternative was slow speed Internet by long distance a costlier and less reliable service that often costs heavy commercial users 200 300 a month Menarick visited urban based cable Internet providers including a brief session with Robin Lavoie Internet wizard at Cogeco in Trois Rivieres trying to learn as much as possible about their marketing and service approach He also met Brad Davies president of Cancable Inc who worked closely with Cogeco and Rogers and pioneered the installation of Internet over cable across Canada These discussions sold him on the idea and Davies and his crew travelled to Chisasibi to install the modem network and train local staff including Menarick in providing support The Internet does not recognize geographic boundaries and residents of Chisasibi are now travelling on the information superhighway as quickly as anyone in North America noted Davies Residents of Chisasibi now have Internet service which is as good as that available in most large Canadian cities We found Menarick and his staff were not afraid to experiment with new technology Now they are self sufficient and operate an advanced data over cable network without outside assistance Menarick learned quickly that Internet customers need support Despite his busy schedule at the radio station he decided to head the support team When a customer has an Internet problem in Chisasibi it s the company president who makes sure its solved Does Internet service make ends meet Hardly answered Menarick We re planning to provide telephone access for under 20 for those who find cable modems too expensive But for those cable customers who want totally unlimited high speed service we charge 50 and a rent to own modem for 15 Today most businesses in Chisasibi and a growing number of home users have signed up We re reaching 15 of our cable market said Menarick With the growing interest in computers and the increasing number of students graduating from our high school our plan needs another year before we make the Internet pay But we really look at it as a service to the community It s cable TV that still pays the bills Even more Internet is an important edge over the DTH competition DTH Invasion We always promoted cable as a family medium that serves everyone at the same time said Rupert We connect households
