Lasqueti Wireless - High-speed Internet Access
There are two ways to access internet on Lasqueti:
1. Hotspot access
Hotspot access is a public service offered by LIAS in certain areas of Lasqueti - around the LIAS office and some areas of False Bay. This is a limited service, intended as a convenience for Lasqueti residents and visitors, so you can get online for short tasks, like checking e-mail or looking up a local business. Use is limited to ONE hour per day between 7am and 7pm.
2. Personal Home Use:
To set up high speed internet at home, you will need a radio installed by one of our tech assistants to receive the wireless signal from our network.
The cost of set up varies from about $250 to $450 depending on each individual circumstance. ... For the internet service fees, see rates
If you are interested or want to learn if you can receive an internet signal, please contact us.
All accounts require a LIAS membership at a cost of $25/year
We all hate overage charges! It is a pain for LIAS, and always unwelcome on your bill. Please try to select a plan that meets your monthly bandwidth needs to avoid overage charges. That said, LIAS pays for bandwidth, and must find ways to share that bandwidth fairly among our members - overage charges is our best idea:
$2 / GB over monthly plan limit
Please see LIAS Overage Policy for detailed information.
