The Trust’s broadband initiative was successful in receiving funds from the provincial government’s Connecting BC Program.
Columbia Basin Broadband Corporation, the Trust’s wholly owned subsidiary, and 12 local Internet service providers (ISPs) have been granted nearly $2.3 million to continue their work of improving high-speed access in rural communities around the Basin. Read the full news release here.
This funding comes in addition to the $3.34 million already awarded by the federal government’s Connecting Canadians program.
The Trust is committed to improving high-speed Internet access in the region, and these grants are important steps toward enabling rural Basin residents to participate fully in the digital world.
