MKO Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson is welcoming the new changes brought on by the CRTC to declare broadband internet access an essential service across the country.

 

The aim for Canada’s telecommunications regulator is to ensure in the next 10 to 15 years that service providers will offer Internet to all households and businesses at least 50 megabits per second.

 

This will benefit smaller towns including isolated communities and reserves and help small businesses in remote communities.

 

North Wilson has been trying to push governments to help isolated communities and the people who live there feel connected to the world.
