ETRdotTV ThunderWAN is our branded Wireless Internet Service that can provide high bandwidth access to select freestanding locations all around Toronto’s downtown waterfront and Toronto Island. You can get the speed of fiber even without access to fiber. Currently, seasonal service is active for boaters at Toronto Island Marina, Toronto Island Sailing Club and at Island Yacht Club, with more locations coming.
Guest access is available at The Upper Deck Restaurant and Bar at Toronto Island Marina, at the IYC Clubhouse, and at the new Brunch Express (formerly Espresso Cultura) at One Yonge. ETRdotTV ThunderWAN subscribers may also log in to their secure accounts at any location that has our guest access.
Utilizing our own digital links across the harbour to a commercial datacentre, ETRdotTV ThunderWAN enjoys almost unlimited Internet capacity. We peer with providers like Cogent, Beanfield, AT&T, Comcast, Cogeco, Rogers, Telus, Bell and others.

NEW for 2024: High-Performance Isolated Service add-on provides a total of up to 30Mb/s of unlimited data transfer directly to your boat! This service utilizes an onboard router and direct connection to our network, which bypasses our regular wi-fi infrastructure. This is of particular value to those subscribers who require an on-board network for printers or scanners, or direct wi-fi connections such as smartphone-to-TV Chromecast and similar devices that must communicate locally between themselves. Our Isolated Service will also improve videoconferencing applications such as Zoom and Teams.
Isolated Service requires some specific hardware to be installed on your boat. You can make a one time purchase of this hardware for $200, and then your monthly charge is $10 plus your ETRdotTV ThunderWAN plan fee. Alternatively you can include the hardware cost as a rental charge in the monthly fee which then becomes $18 per month plus your ETRdotTV ThunderWAN plan fee. HST is added to all quoted prices. If equipment is rented it must be returned at the end of each season.
Please contact us if you would like more information on our High Performance Isolated Service.
