The Huron North Community Economic Alliance (HNCEA) needs your help. The HNCEA has created a Broadband Task Group to pursue the needs, voids and gaps regarding internet in our region. The Federal Government has wet a target for 90% of Canadians to receive an internet connection of 50 Mbps down and 10 Mbps Up by 2021. There will soon be several funding opportunities to assist internet Service Providers in upgrading their networks to deliver these services to Canadians who don't currently have this level of access.  We need to have as many people as possible, in all our communities, to do a Connection Speed Test. Go to by Friday, November 15th. The test must be done at a desktop or laptop computer using your home or office internet. Do not do it on a mobile phone. We will use the results to populate a database of the area's overall internet performance and your community helps us to build a stronger case for improved broadband. You can also fill in the Community Broadband Survey, print it and bring it to the Municipal Office. Thank you to all who participate.
