SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by ncf.ca.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
National Capital FreeNet Confidence: 91% Arrow up

National Capital FreeNet (NCF) (French: Libertel de la Capitale Nationale), is a non-profit community organization internet service provider, with the goal of linking people in Canada's capital of Ottawa and ensuring no Ottawa citizens would be excluded from internet access.

Digital subscriber line Confidence: 80% Arrow up

Digital subscriber line (DSL; originally digital subscriber loop) is a family of technologies that are used to transmit digital data over telephone lines.

In telecommunications marketing, the term DSL is widely understood to mean asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL), the most commonly installed DSL technology, for Internet access.

DSL service can be delivered simultaneously with wired telephone service on the same telephone line.

This is possible because DSL uses higher frequency bands for data.

On the customer premises, a DSL filter on each non-DSL outlet blocks any high-frequency interference to enable simultaneous use of the voice and DSL services.

Ottawa Confidence: 78% Arrow up

Ottawa (or) is the capital city of Canada.

It stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of southern Ontario.

Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec; the two form the core of the Ottawa–Gatineau census metropolitan area (CMA) and the National Capital Region (NCR).

The 2016 census reported a population of 934,243, making it the fourth-largest city in Canada; and 1,323,783 within the CMA, making it the fifth-largest CMA in Canada.

The City of Ottawa reported that the city had an estimated population of 960,754 as of December 2015.

Email Confidence: 75% Arrow up

Electronic mail, or email, is a method of exchanging digital messages between people using digital devices such as computers and mobile phones.

Email first entered substantial use in the 1960s and by the mid-1970s had taken the form now recognized as email.

Email operates across computer networks, which today is primarily the Internet.

Some early email systems required the author and the recipient to both be online at the same time, in common with instant messaging.

Today's email systems are based on a store-and-forward model.

Email servers accept, forward, deliver, and store messages.

Neither the users nor their computers are required to be online simultaneously; they need to connect only briefly, typically to a mail server or a webmail interface, for as long as it takes to send or receive messages.

Internet service provider Confidence: 75% Arrow up

An Internet service provider (ISP) is an organization that provides services for accessing and using the Internet.

Internet service providers may be organized in various forms, such as commercial, community-owned, non-profit, or otherwise privately owned.
