The federal government says more than $857,000 is being invested to bring new or improved high-speed internet access to Union Road, Spring Valley, Malpeque and Indian River.
Of that figure, $642,675 will come from the government’s Connect to Innovate program while the other $214,425 will come from Bell Canada.
Malpeque MP Wayne Easter said this investment will help residents connect with family and friends, do business online, participate in distance education and take advantage of the opportunities afforded by the digital age.
The federal government’s plan is to ensure that, over time, all Canadians will have access to affordable high-speed internet, no matter where they live. It also commits to improving mobile wireless coverage where Canadians live and work, as well as along major highways and roads.
