We currently have 21 towers set up to provide coverage throughout the central Kootenay region. Keep checking our coverage map for more details as we are expanding frequently.

We are committed to providing a secure, reliable, and fast Internet connection to all of our users. Columbia Wireless is also now a wholesaler of Broadband! Please call us for a quote if you are requesting a dedicated Internet Connection of 100Mbps or more!

We are environmentally friendly!

1.) We send out monthly statements electronically to your E-Mail inbox every month instead of mailing out paper copies.
2.) Most of our new towers are fully powered by Solar and Wind generation.
3.) Each of our other towers that are tied to the power grid draw less power than two 60 watt light bulbs!
