High Speed Internet

Rural High-Speed Internet Expansion to Kannata Valley.

Kannata Valley is one of the communities that will benefit from this Federal Government initiative. Flexnetworks will be installing the required underground line from Regina which they anticipate will be completed by December 2021. There are no details provided on the specific services or costs to use the services as Flexnetworks is doing the installation but will be allowing internet providers access to the infrastructure. This will provide a valuable amenity and is a big step forward for our community.
