The CRTC has established an ambitious speed target for networks to deliver speeds of 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload for broadband networks. Furthermore, the CRTC is establishing a fund to assist Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in upgrading their networks to deliver these services to 90% of Canadians who don’t currently have this level of access.
As a starting point to determine what gaps in service may exist in Black River Matheson, NEOnet, is asking you to participate by running the internet speed test at www.connectednorth.ca. You will receive real-time results when running the speed test. We receive a tabular report of the test results too. We will use the results to populate a database of the area’s overall internet performance. No personal information is shared outside of the performance stats that you see yourself. No information is shared with third parties, marketers, or consultants.
The Connectednorth.ca Internet Access survey is your opportunity to inform us of your broadband experience in Black River Matheson. Whether you live or work there, bringing real world stories of how your internet influences your day-to-day life in your community helps us to build a stronger case for improved broadband in Black River Matheson.
Every completed survey and speed test run helps. Feel free to share this page with your friends, neighbours and colleagues in Black River Matheson – with your support we can build a community-focused case for better broadband in Black River Matheson.
