Our mission is to empower small communities one connection at a time because we want to enable those who’ve chosen a rural lifestyle to be able to more than sustain it, but also to thrive in it.
Sequorum started when 3 guys who worked together in IT and Telecommunications for a number of decades had the opportunity to witness how people living in small communities and rural settings couldn’t access the internet with enough bandwidth to reliably conduct a video call. This negatively impacted many people’s lives because, based on where they lived, they couldn’t work, or participate in school, or even get access to health services from their home the same way those who live in a big city can. This was bad enough under normal circumstances, but then our “normal” changed and made it even more important to remedy the situation. So Sequorum was formed.
Of the 3 founders, 2 of us have spouses who are teachers, and 1 has a spouse who is a nurse. It makes sense, then, that we are keenly aware of the issues currently faced by our education and healthcare systems. In particular, we see and hear many stories about how delivering education and healthcare resources in rural communities is so challenging right now because the connectivity is inadequate. We’ve seen first hand a range of consequences experienced when people are unconnected, like grade 12 kids unable to graduate from high school because of lock-downs, to sick people getting hospitalized when it could’ve been avoided if medical assistance was available sooner, all the way to increased suicide rates where shut-in people have no access to meaningful human interaction when they need it.
Sequorum custom-designs, constructs, and manages exceptionally reliable high-speed internet access networks to connect small communities virtually anywhere. Using virtually unlimited combinations of every current network technology—fibre optics, wireless fibre, wireless mesh, and wireless point-to-multipoint, being the most common—we connect each client within our networks to bi-directional bandwidths from 100Mbps to 1Gbps depending on their needs. We typically build these networks in rural locations often situated in difficult-to-serve terrains such as in mountains, hills, valleys, and heavily forested areas. No matter where your community is, nor the terrain in which it is situated, we can build a network that reliably connects every single home and business in it. And our networks typically cost between 25% - 35% of those constructed with single technologies.
