Internet in rural PEI

Notes & Ideas

  • Infrastructure exists for wind turbines. High-speed internet would allow people to work from home and like in rural Pei where property is more affordable.

  • Lots of government announcements promised this over last 12 years but it is still not a reality.
  • Tourist expect high-speed internet everywhere example campgrounds. Municipalities don't have money to invest in high speed internet.
  • Allows immigrants to communicate with families back home for (ex: Skype FaceTime etc.)

Questions
