Columbia Wireless is a High Speed Wireless Internet Service Provider. We are a family owned and operated company based out of the city of Nelson. We currently have 14 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. We believe that our users should not have to sift through their own email and delete spam emails manually, that is why we go one step further and block the spam before it gets to you. Columbia Wireless also provides a content filtering firewall that protects our users from automated virus attacks and other security threats.

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!
