Getting connected to Internet in Canada is very simple. Standard service alternatives include: dial-up, ADSL and cable.

Not all services are accessible everywhere, which means that in some areas you may be stuck with only one option (particularly dial up). However, if you live in a large city such as Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver you will have plenty of options to choose from.

If you possess a laptop, some establishments such as airports, four and five star hotels, and cafés such as "Starbucks" and "Second Cup" may have Wi-Fi connections available for a fee. Even though these are not very available yet, they provide an alternative to Internet cafes.

If you wish to use services that permit you call from your PC to normal telephones, you will need to get a special setup. Peculiarly your connection will be the only limiting factor since the service provider will be using high speed connections.

One example of this type of communication Skype.
