Ontario Brings Whitchurch-Stouffville Online
McGuinty Government Supports Local Infrastructure Project
Ontario is delivering high-speed internet to the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville through the Rural Connections Broadband Program.
Upon its completion, this project will provide 3,272 residents, 239 local businesses and 2 community centres with the infrastructure needed to access high-speed internet.
Investing in local broadband infrastructure is part of the Open Ontario Plan to create jobs and opportunities for rural Ontario.
- Ontario is providing up to $262,967 to the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville through the Rural Connections Broadband Program.
- Since 2007, more than 250,000 rural Ontarians have access to a high-speed network, and that number will grow to 1 million once all projects are completed.
- Broadband combines telecommunications infrastructure and service to deliver more Internet information at speeds far greater than dial-up service.
“The McGuinty government is working to help bring vital health, education and business services to Ontarians living in rural and remote communities. Helping the residents of Whitchurch-Stouffville get online will boost the local economy and education.”
Hon. Carol Mitchell
“The construction of a broadband network will help to expand and improve local businesses in Whitchurch-Stouffville and their services, connect family and friends to one another, and help boost our region's economy.”
