The government is investing $889,523 to bring new or improved high-speed internet access to several locations across New Brunswick.
Locations will include Rollingdam, Bonny River, Jemseg, McDonald Corner, Upper Hainesville and Davidson Lake, a press release indicated.
Of the total amount, $664,893 will come from the Connect to Innovate program that was announced in 2016 and received a top-up in Budget 2019. $67,300 is sourced from the government of New Brunswick, and $157,330 will be provided by Bell.
Connecting these communities is part of Rural Economic Development Minister Bernadette Jordan’s Connectivity Strategy, which includes connecting 100 percent of Canadians to high-speed internet by 2030.
