Residents in rural areas of the Shuswap and North Okanagan will have high-speed Internet access by 2017.
My B.C. Datacom will use a provincial grant of $106,000 to connect residents of many communities, including Grandview Bench, Grandview Flats, Yankee Flats, Splatsin Nation, Spallumcheen, Enderby, Mara and Deep Creek.
“This investment will improve the quality of life for many people in the Shuswap and North Okanagan,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.
“Families, students and businesses will be connected as never before, giving them all of the benefits high-speed Internet can bring.”
This project is funded through Connecting British Columbia, a $10-million, multi-year grant program that helps to pay for infrastructure required to deliver high-speed Internet connectivity to homes and businesses in rural B.C.
