Correction: Due to faulty formatting in Northwestel’s news release, there was a mistake in the previous information contained in this story. In actuality, customers in Iqaluit, Arviat, Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet will have their internet usage limits double for the months of March and April.

Northwestel customers in Iqaluit, Arviat, Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet see their internet usage limits rise by 100 per cent in March in April, the Northern telecom company confirmed on Monday evening.

This bonus is part of Northwestel’s COVID-19 response.

These temporary benefits will automatically be applied to customers’ bills, the company stated.

  1. The nwtel website says 100gb extra for Iqaluit, Arviat, Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet but Nunavut news says no overage fees. Which is it?

    1. Thank you for pointing that out. The news release from Northwestel sent via email had faulty formatting. Customers in Iqaluit, Arviat, Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet will see their internet usage limits double for March and April. The story has been revised accordingly.
