If you live in a house that doesn’t have internet access, you’re out of luck.
That’s because most Canadians don’t have the money to get internet service.
Internet service in Canada is typically priced at $15 a month or less.
It’s a $25 price tag for most homes in many markets, according to data from telecom company Rogers Communications Inc. Some Canadians who are willing to pay for a little bit of extra Internet service may also want to consider buying a more expensive plan.
If you want to use the internet more often, you may also be better off paying for a plan that gives you a better deal.
The Canadian Association of Broadcasters said it’s common for people to use their home broadband as their primary source of information when using the internet, and that they’re paying a premium to do so.
They said many Canadians can’t afford to pay as much as $50 for a home broadband package that provides high speeds, even if they do want to.
