Skyway West, High Speed Business Internet Specialists

22. March 2012 Internet Services 0

Skyway West is a full service ISP, delivering services across Canada, with a main focus in BC and Alberta.

All of our services connect to a Multi-Peered, Multi-Homed network, including direct connectivity to Telus (Western Canada), Bell (Eastern Canada), BC Net, Level3 (#1 U.S. carrier) and NTT ( 3rd largest carrier in the world). We also peer to over 90 other networks, including Shaw and Microsoft.

We have no residential customers congesting bandwidth watching Netflix, and we prioritize DNS, VoIP and RDP traffic before anything else on our network.

Overview of Services

We recommend business broadband at the branch locations, but Premium Internet Access Services at the Head Office.

Business Broadband at the Branch

• DSL, up to 15 Mbps
• Bonded DSL, up to 60 Mbps
• Cable, up to 250 Mbps
• Symmetrical Fixed Wireless, up to 10 Mbps

Premium Internet at Head Office

• Symmetrical Full Duplex Fibre, up to 200 Mbps
• Symmetrical Ethernet over Copper, up to 20 Mbps

We also recommend running applications in our Private Cloud, either on your own equipment in our Secure Data Centre, or on our “Infrastructure as a Service” or Virtual Co-location environment.
• Physical Data Centre includes Full Duplex 100 Mbps connection
• Virtual Data Centre includes a Full Duplex GigE connection

Aggregating Traffic

At the branch locations, where there may not be the budget for Fibre, we recommend aggregating traffic over 2 Internet connections. Important business applications get much higher performance when not sharing bandwidth with web surfing, and Skyway can configure an auto fail-over if one service becomes unavailable.

• Branch-to-Branch traffic over Skyway (i.e. DSL)
• Web Surfing over secondary service, from another ISP (i.e. Shaw Cable)


When Voice and Data share one service, Skyway can configure QoS or Quality of Service, giving important business applications (like VoIP) priority over your Internet connection.

Private Networking

Skyway can deliver a full MPLS network, or we can emulate MPLS using our MetaLAN Private Network Service. Both our MPLS and MetaLAN service removes the need for VPN routers and eliminates VPN overhead, freeing up additional bandwidth for important applications.
