Eastern Ontario Officials Respond to Provincial Broadband Funding

General Notices

Elected officials across Eastern Ontario are hopeful that the Government of Ontario’s new $4-billion broadband program will help deliver Gig level speeds across the region.

The Province announced that the program, Ontario Connects, will connect every home, community and area to high-speed internet by the end of 2025. The program will provide funding directly to Internet Service Providers, who will be selected to serve different geographic areas through a series of reverse-bid auction events.

The substantial investment is applauded by the Eastern Ontario Regional Network, along with the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus and the Eastern Ontario Mayors’ Caucus.
