Broadband is no longer recognized as a luxury. It is a basic infrastructure requirement.
On Thursday, July 19th, 2016 the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) released an open letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne calling on the government to commit dedicated provincial infrastructure funds to developing and expanding broadband infrastructure in remote and rural areas of the province where there is simply not a case for private sector investment.
With record investments being made by government in transit and transportation, we are calling upon the provincial government to recognize, through infrastructure dollars, that access to high speed internet is similarly essential for Ontario businesses to compete in the 21st century global economy.
