National Capital FreeNet is a local, not-for-profit alternative to commercial internet service providers. Since 1992 we have served more than 100,000 members.
We believe that everyone in Canada's National Capital Region should have access to the internet, meaning they can afford a high-quality connection, understand how to use it, and feel safe online. As a social enterprise, we invest in bandwidth and community services, keeping prices as low as we can while staying sustainable.
We sell high speed DSL up to 50 mbps speed with unlimited usage, offer free locally-hosted email, basic web hosting, skills workshops, and dial-up. In addition to our staff support, we have an award-winning volunteer-driven Help Desk so our members can ask questions about a range of internet and computer-related issues.
In 2016 we launched our Community Access Fund, including a low-cost unlimited usage internet package for 32,000 Ottawa Community Housing tenants.
We were founded with a value of members helping members. If you have a question, concern, suggestion or idea for NCF please let us know!
