Residents of Campbellville to benefit from increased connectivity to high-speed Internet
All Canadians need reliable and affordable high-speed Internet, no matter where they live. The governments of Canada and Ontario are taking action to bring high-speed internet access to unserved and underserved communities.
Today, Parm Gill, Member of Provincial Parliament for Milton, on behalf of the Honourable Kinga Surma, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure, together with, Adam van Koeverden, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Health and to the Minister of Sport, on behalf of the Honourable Gudie Hutchings, Minister of Rural Economic Development, announced nearly $2.4 million in combined federal-provincial funding for Cogeco Connexion to bring high-speed internet access to up to 299 homes and businesses in Campbellville, Ontario.
“Proud that our government has invested in updating infrastructure in rural Milton.” Said Parm Gill, MPP for Milton. “Today’s announcement has been highly anticipated by the residents of rural Milton. Cogeco is bringing high-speed internet in rural communities across the province, thanks to a combined drive from the Provincial and Federal Government. Residents of Campbellville can expect high-speed internet in the years to come.”
This project being announced today is part of an existing partnership between Ontario and Canada. On July 29, 2021, the governments announced their partnership to support large-scale, fibre-based projects that will provide high-speed internet access to more than 280,000 households and businesses across the province. This historic agreement was made possible by a joint federal-provincial investment totaling more than $1.2 billion.
Today’s announcement brings Ontario closer to achieving its goal of making high-speed internet accessible in every community across the province by the end of 2025.
