Canada To US Options

12 posts in this topic

I am posting here in hopes there are a few people with experience, also I don't even know what to search for on Google.

 

This may sound stupid, but I am fed up with the Internet we get here in Canada (currently Ottawa, Ontario). I know most other places aren't great, but from what I have heard so far, Google Fiber is awesome.

 

So that would be my only reason to move.

 

Now I work online at home. I work for a company that has people all around the world, but has offices in Portuguel

 

What do I need to do, what can I do, my options for living in Kansas City (thats where Google Fiber is right?) if I still want to be a Canadian citizen but live in Kansas.

 

Is this possible, what is needed? Anything I should know about living in the US, or even about living in Kansas? I did some searching but didn't really find anything, I assume because I am not sure exactly what to search for.

 

Ideas, suggestions, etc....

Canada will allow dual citizenship and America will not force you to renounce your Canadian Citizenship. You will require a Visa with work rights and time. Eventually after a probationary period you can become a resident, and then some time later a Citizen. This process takes a long time.

 

I personally wouldn't recommend immigrating over something as silly as internet. As I've immigrated from Canada to Australia. It's complicated, time consuming, expensive and annoying. I can almost guarantee it won't be worth faster internet.

I believe their basic install includes a wireless router built into their internet device while a deluxe version of it (with actual Ethernet output) is also available. The company itself is actually owned by the town itself since no regular ISP would take on such a cost without having a huge return. They aren't expecting a huge return on the investment though, they just wanted to offer something to attract businesses and people. They spent about 6 million into this.

Maybe I should convince my job to let me telecommute from that town on Canada! We do have people in Canada, I've helped one or two so far

Just move to Nova Scotia, we got kickass internet here from Eastlink. I'm currently using 20 down and 2 up for $65/month with no monthly bandwidth caps. But you can get even higher speeds like 200 down and 10 up for $250/month. Plus Atlantic Canada is the only place in Canada that you can get true 4G LTE cell service.

Go West in Canada anywhere there is Shaw Internet, Maybe not as good as fibre/fiber but still pretty decent internet speeds. Actually I think Shaw is also in some cities in Ontario.

Everything is relative.
