Northwestel announced on Tuesday it had launched faster internet services in 11 northern communities, including four Yukon communities.
Residents of Pelly Crossing, Faro, Ross River and Champagne can now have Internet download speeds of up to 15 megabits per second.
That means the maximum available Internet download speed in these communities has tripled, Northwestel said in a news release.
These communities will also have a monthly bandwidth allowance of up to 200 gigabytes.
The company said the new speeds are part of a five-year plan that will give faster Internet download speeds to 46 northern communities by the end of next year.
