LTE High-Speed Unlimited Internet Starting at $65.99 a Month

LTE is “location-specific” requiring line of sight to an existing tower, and providing the fastest speeds available. Up to 50 Mbps download with unlimited data allows you to freely stream, game, and operate multiple devices simultaneously without lag or wait times. Basic packages are also available for households with basic internet needs.


Xplornet towers cover a wide radius around Olds, Didsbury, Sundre, Carstairs, Three Hills, Linden, Trochu, Glennifer Lake, Wimborne and Crossfield Alberta. Coverage reaches across the town and acreages or farms within a 20 mile radius.


We will mount a small module to a fixed site, such as a rooftop, roof edge, or deck railing, that has line of sight to an existing Xplornet tower. Using a cable we connect the module to an indoor power source (provided) then to a wifi router or whole home mesh.

Whole home mesh systems extend wifi across a much larger area, for seamless internet in larger homes. 

RIPs Audio Video also offers "Bridging" systems for rural farms and acreages, that extend your wifi to multiple buildings on the same property. 

Satellite Internet Starting at $95.99 a Month, with a wifi router included

No line of sight to an LTE tower? No problem.

In town, on the farm or off the grid, Xplornet Satellite is designed to connect you with high speed internet from nearly anywhere.

For satellite internet, you only need clear view of the sky. A 25mbps speed supports streaming, meeting and operating multiple devices simultaneously.  

Available data packages go up to a whopping 250GB a month, with top-ups by request, so you never have to run out of data. 

Xplornet Satellite Advantages: 
  Someone local to get you set up 
  Complete install by a local technician
  Continued support by phone and in-person service calls


Satellite dishes are heavier, requiring a stable roof or frame for mounting that is out of normal reach (min: 6 feet off the ground).

Clear line of sight to the sky (south). When this is lacking, contact us at RIPs Audio Video and we will walk you through what is needed for your exact situation. 

RIPs Audio Video staff can help you choose the right package for your needs and an install date that works with your schedule.
