The internet served as a lifeline for many of us during the pandemic — providing the one avenue for connection when physical contact was severed. Despite its essential social role, home internet in Canada ranks among some of the most expensive in the world.
Babbl is on a mission to change that. Recently sitting down with The Nanaimo News Bulletin, Babbl’s president and founder Jason Speers shared how Babbl plans to bring more affordable home internet to Western Canadians.
And it all starts with Babbl’s role as a third-party internet service provider (ISP). In a nutshell, the third-party ISP model is a mandate by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) that telecom companies sell access to independent internet providers at a regulated price. Through this model, Babbl is able to gain access to high-quality networking without having to build its own expensive infrastructure. As a result, Babbl is able to pass these significant savings along to its customers.
“Unlike the big providers, we’re able to remain cost-efficient and ensure our prices are kept to a minimum for our customers,” Speers shared. “We look forward to redefining the home-internet experience in Western Canada.
Besides speaking to Babbl’s affordability, Speers also highlighted many of its other key benefits — including its no-hassle cancelation, contract-free service, and easy self-support. In addition, Speers highlighted Babbl’s assortment of plans designed to meet the needs of all types of home internet users, including casual browsers and remote workers all the way to heavy gamers.
As Nanaimo’s newest home internet provider, Babbl is excited to bring its services to the unique needs of the city’s diverse residents. Whether you’re a snowbird who lives away from home for a few months a year, a seasonal tree planter, a student, or rental property owner, Babbl’s suite of plans is designed to meet all home internet needs.
Babbl is currently offered in Nanaimo, Richmond, and Parksville and will be expanding throughout Western Canada later this year.
