The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has selected the first five projects to receive funding from its Broadband Fund.


The fund will provide $72 million CAD to Broadband Communications North and Northwestel for projects in Manitoba, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.




The CRTC’s universal service objective for fixed internet access service across Canada is having access to at least 50Mbps download and 10Mbps upload. It notes that in 2019, only 42.6 percent of rural households had access to these speeds.

It's great to see Canada investing in better broadband for more remote users and the general broadband health of the Canada-wide broadband network.
