Lakeland Networks #1 for Fastest Internet by PC Mag!

Jun 20, 2024


Bracebridge, Ontario: In a remarkable achievement, Lakeland Networks has earned the prestigious recognition by PCMag as the fastest Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the Muskoka & Parry Sound Districts. 

Surpassing industry giants Bell, Cogeco, TELUS, Rogers, and Shaw, Lakeland secured the position of second fastest ISP in Canada and Ontario, making them the undisputed #1 in their service area. 

COO Vince Kulchycki’s reaction when he heard the news was, ‘This is epic!’. He added, ‘I’m incredibly proud of our local team. Their smarts, dedication, and customer focus helped us rank above the big players. Speed is crucial, but so are reliability and stellar customer service—and our team knocks it out of the park every time.” 

Lakeland’s win proves that supporting local doesn’t mean sacrificing quality – there are many incredible businesses and staff in the area that are best in their fields. 

Sam Roche, Manager of Network Operations, commented, “Our team is constantly reassessing, modifying, and innovating to ensure our customers get the absolute best we can offer.” 

Note: Lakeland does not advertise nor is affiliated in any way with PCMag.

Through more than 600 kilometers of fiber optics, residents looking for the best value—speed, reliability, local crews, local sales, and especially local customer service—need look no further.
