Detailed Information

ESIS is an incorporated not-for-profit internet society formed with the goal of bringing affordable and reliable high-speed internet service to Crawford Bay and surrounding central Kootenay Lake communities.

Established in 2005 by local citizens who recognized the growing need for broadband access, its importance to rural community sustainability, and an opportunity to partner with the Government of British Columbia and Telus in the Connection Communities Agreement, ESIS is a grass roots organization mandated to plan, build and operate a community owned wireless network delivering last mile connectivity to area residents, visitors, businesses and organizations.  ESIS embodies the spirit of a co-op, working on behalf of its membership, and a strong commitment to the public trust, with operations firmly based on sound business and technical practises.

Today, through a growing wireless network that now extends well beyond Crawford Bay to service the outlying communities of Gray Creek, Kootenay Bay, Pilot Bay, Riondel Road, Ainsworth, Queens Bay, Mountain Shores, Boswell and Sanca, ESIS has over 325 subscribing households, businesses and organizations, providing enhanced connectivity to the world for hundreds of local residents and visitors
