How are we different than other providers?

  • Northwestel is the only wired Internet service provider in Nunavut. Our competitors deliver service wirelessly to customer homes. We offer a “wired last mile” which helps us deliver a highly reliable Internet service as compared to wireless delivery.
  • Northwestel provides a free wireless modem with every Internet package subscription.
  • Our competitors are governed by a Fair Access Policies (FAP) which throttles a customer’s speed and usage based on daily usage caps and network constraints at peak hours. With Northwestel your speed and usage will never be throttled.

* Only available in Iqaluit at this time.
