COUNTY HOPES TO TAP INTO CRTC FUNDING FOR BETTER INTERNET SERVICE 11/7/2018 6:45:23 AM
There's going to be money available for improving broadband come the new year. Renfrew County is looking to see if they can access some of the 750-million dollars that will be available through the CRTC. Media Relations Co-Ordinator for Renfrew County, Mike Barber, says there are some under-served areas that could use additional funding.
Barber says the county is waiting for more information as to what projects will receive funding in 2019. The CRTC has plans to increase internet speeds in under-served areas up to 50 Megabits per second download speeds with the option of having unlimited data for fixed broadband services.
