Federal & provincial government to connect rural households to high-speed Internet


The federal and provincial government has entered into a partnership to provide $136 million to connect all remaining rural households in the province to high-speed Internet.


Up to $116 million of this funding comes from the Government of Canada and up to $20 million in funding comes from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.


Government will work with internet service providers to achieve the national target of connecting 98 percent of Canadians by 2026, and 100 percent by 2030.
