NetSet in Pinawa

Netset in Pinawa

—Posted February 25, 2017 – The Pinawa Chamber investigated the new internet provision promised by NetSet and sent a letter to Mayor, Council and PCDC January 31st to garner further information about their service. NetSet contacted the Chamber and gave two Executive members a Webinar on their proposed tower and network February 24. This Brandon-based business may bring competition to the region, and we believe competition is healthy – quite often it brings down prices and bumps up service. What NetSet seems to offer is better expandability in service with greater speeds as needed and paid for by the customer, compared to existing services. However, how factual those benefits are can only be verified after installation. NetSet may offer a free install to business customers at it’s inauguration. This new internet service based on TD-LTE microwave signals from a network of towers is of no cost to Pinawa. NetSet is a community friendly business with support for community gatherings and business employee benefits. NetSet’s offering will be beneficial to the region and a stimulus to grow Pinawa’s business community, thus the Pinawa Chamber of Commerce fully supports and welcomes NetSet’s arrival.
