North Shore, Help Us Test Your Internet Performance!

The first step in improving internet access in North Shore, Ontario.


What can you do to help?

The CRTC has established an ambitious speed target for networks to deliver speeds of 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload for broadband networks. Furthermore, the CRTC is establishing a fund to assist Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in upgrading their networks to deliver these services to 90% of Canadians who don’t currently have this level of access.

As a starting point to determine what gaps in service may exist in North Shore, Blue Sky Net is asking you to participate by running the internet speed test at You will receive real-time results when running the speed test. We receive a tabular report of the test results too. We will use the results to populate a database of the area’s overall internet performance. No personal information is shared outside of the performance stats that you see yourself. No information is shared with third parties, marketers, or consultants. The Internet Access survey is your opportunity to inform us of your broadband experience in North Shore, Ontario. Whether you live or work there, bringing real world stories of how your internet influences your day-to-day life in your community helps us to build a stronger case for improved broadband in North Shore. Every completed survey and speed test run helps. Feel free to share this page with your friends, neighbours and colleagues in North Shore – with your support we can build a community-focused case for better broadband in North Shore, Ontario.





While you’re at, we’d like you to take our Internet access survey to get your opinions on a variety of subjects about internet usage and access in North Shore, Ontario.

This will also help build the case for service improvements for your area. Like the speed test, no personal information will be shared outside this project!



To initiate the test, we ask you to give us the street address from where you are running the test as well as the type of connection you have to the internet (to learn more about connection types, you can visit our learn page). This is important to accurately identify network performances in your neighbourhood. If you’re using a tablet or smartphone with a cellular data plan, please ensure (when possible) you have enabled wi-fi to run the test. The speed test is located at the bottom of the homepage

Please feel free to take the test several times, it would help us if you took the test at different times of the day, too!
