Feds and Ontario Detail Massive Rural Internet Rollout, Bell to Get $173 Million Contract



The federal government and province of Ontario have announced new combined funding of over $56 million to bring high speed internet to over 6,500 homes in rural northern and southwestern Ontario, along with First Nation communities (about $8,615/home).

The additional spending is on top of last July’s joint announcement that earmarked over $1.2 billion to bring high speed internet to over 280,000 rural and remote homes in Ontario.

On Tuesday, both the federal and Ontario governments released more details about the internet service providers set to roll out the 28 projects announced in July 2021, as part of $398 million in joint funding to bring internet to 55,800 households across the province ($7,132/home).
