Internet service for the rural residents of the Vanderhoof area has been a challenge over the years. Due to the sparse population in many areas the business model hasn’t attracted conventional ADSL or Cable providers to reach outside of the main city centre. Local company Hwy 16 Internet was started in response to this need and was able to launch services to allow early internet users to gain similar access to their urban cousins. Upgrading and investing in newer technology is an expensive undertaking for a smaller company so in 2011 it was sold to larger regional provider ABC Communications.
