High-speed internet access for rural residents of Burlington, Milton, Oakville and Halton Hills is one step closer thanks to the provincial government.

The Ontario government is bringing high-speed internet access to up to 266,000 unserved and underserved homes and businesses, including those served by Cogeco.

“Our government is ensuring every community in Ontario has access to reliable high-speed internet,” said Kinga Surma, Minister of Infrastructure.

The province has signed agreements with eight internet service providers to bring access to as many as 339 municipalities across Ontario. The internet service providers were selected through a two-stage competitive process and are part of Ontario’s investment of nearly $4 billion to bring access to reliable high-speed internet across the province.

“This competitive process is the first of its kind in Canada and has led to an unprecedented market response and commitment to deliver high-speed internet connections to communities that have been left underserved until now,” said Michael Lindsay, president and CEO of Infrastructure Ontario.
