Update – Broadband Connectivity in Rural Canada

Over the summer, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology announced they were undertaking a study on Broadband Connectivity in Rural Canada. Cybera, in consultation with its community, wrote and submitted a brief to the committee. 

In the brief, Cybera outlines the barriers faced by rural internet users and network operators, and submits that as​ ​the​ ​Government​ ​of​ ​Canada​ ​invests​ ​in broadband​ ​access​ ​infrastructure,​ ​it​ ​should​ ​pursue​ ​a​ ​“fibre-first”​ ​rural​ ​broadband​ ​strategy in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​future-proof​ ​its​ ​investment.​ 

You can read the full brief [here].
