Looking for Good Wireless Internet?

Reason for reading: To get a discount code for an Internet solution that might work for you!

I am constantly being asked about who we use for our Internet Service Provider (ISP) services so, after sending out many individual e-mails explaining the answer (and offering a discount code too!), I thought I should simply post the information here and save myself some time! :)

If you’re located outside the regular service areas of Telus and Shaw in Alberta, and you’ve been struggling unhappily with poor wireless or satellite Internet connections or (heaven forbid!) dial-up (in which case you have our heartfelt sympathy!) then you might want to check out this solution.

Pondside has operated as a business using dial-up in the form of 14.4, 28.8, and satellite (both one-way and two-way), then on slow ‘high-speed’ wireless, and finally on some really consistently great wireless!

Our experiences with other companies were such that, at first, the service and speed of upload and download were fantastic. However, as they began to over-subscribe to users, the speed died, problems arose and customer service waned.

Enter MCSNet into our lives! We’ve been with MCSNet for almost 2.5 years and have no complaints :)

So, if you’re looking for a new Internet Service Provider, get the discount code below and check out MCSNet.

First you’ll want to check their coverage map or call MCSNet and ask if they provide service in your area.

They offer packages for both residential and business. This is a good place to look for your wireless Internet package options.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for there, try going to the MCSNet homepage.

…and the part you’ve been waiting for… A discount code for their services:


(That first character is a zero.) You need to make sure you enter that code into forms or tell them about the discount code BEFORE they do the installation.

I hope this helps anyone with poor Internet service to get what they need! I’ve heard they apparently have other packages that aren’t announced on their pricing page so ask to make sure you get what you really want.

Happy surfing! :)
