Rogers Acquires Ontario Internet Company Ruralwave

Rogers has today announced the acquisition of Ruralwave, an independently owned and locally operated internet company based out of Little Britain Ontario.


Ruralwave, which currently provides Internet services to 2,400 customers throughout the townships of Ramara, Scugog, Brock, the City of Kawartha Lakes, and the Municipality of Clarington, will continue to lead the day-to-day and provide customer service in these areas.

Rogers has said that over the next few months, the two companies will work together to identify opportunities to offer local customers additional Internet and entertainment services, including Rogers leading IPTV service, Ignite TV.

“Rural communities are vital to everything we do at Ruralwave,” said Dan Risebrough Barnes, Founder of Ruralwave. “Over the years, the need for our services grew, and we continued to expand our network to service more communities.”

“We are excited to welcome the Ruralwave team to the Rogers family and start our journey to grow the local network and ensure more homes and business have access to the latest technology now, and in the future,” said Ron McKenzie, Senior Vice President, Technical Operations at Rogers Communications.

The acquisition was completed on September 30, 2020.
