First Nations Communities Will Benefit from Improved Internet Service.

 

 

Indigenous and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett reports the federal government is working in partnership with First Nations to improve the quality of life on reserves and in remote and isolated communities.  She announced 4.2 million dollars for the next phase of a project that will support design and planning for an internet network that will bring affordable, dependable, high speed internet to all 63 Manitoba First Nations and 189 other Manitoba communities and municipalities. The work for this phase of the project will be completed in 2016-17 with planning to extend Manitoba Hydro’s existing fibre optic infrastructure to remote communities as a starting point.  Once this extension is completed internet service providers will be able to use this fibre optic infrastructure to deliver internet service at the community level.
