What can you do to help?
The CRTC has established an ambitious speed target for networks to deliver speeds of 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload for broadband networks. The Government of Canada understands all Canadians need high-speed internet to connect with their families, places of work, education and access to essential medical services. Canada has multiple programs that will help more Canadians connect and have access to high-speed internet. You can read more about the programs available and Canada’s plan on the Innovation, Science and Economic Development website here.
As a starting point to determine what gaps in service may exist in Greater Sudbury, we ask you to participate by running the internet speed test at www.connectednorth.ca. Connectednorth.ca has partnered with CIRA’s Internet Performance Test, to collect the most detailed information relating to Northern Ontario’s internet speeds. When you take this test, you are helping us to support applications to funding agencies such as the CRTC, the Universal Broadband Fund and the Provincial Broadband Fund. We use the information about speeds at your property to show the need and the impact improved Broadband Infrastructure will have.
