Bell getting $13M for high-speed internet across eastern Ontario

The federal and Ontario governments announced Monday the awarding of $13 million to Bell to bring high-speed internet to more than 6,400 homes in 11 communities across eastern Ontario. The communities expected to benefit are Arnprior, Braeside, Burnstown, Carp, Constance Bay, Dunrobin, Fitzroy Harbour, Glasgow Station, Kinburn, Marathon Village, and White Lake. Funding in part comes courtesy of the $3.225-billion Universal Broadband Fund, which has partnered with provinces to deliver money to high-speed internet projects. Ontario is aiming to provide high-speed internet access to every community in the province by the end of 2025.
