About 82% of Canadians last year already had access to broadband Internet at a speed of 50 Mbit / s. Compared with many countries in the world, this is already a very high figure. However, the government set the task to make the Internet accessible to all citizens of Canada. For this purpose it is planned to allocate 750 million Canadian dollars (557 million US dollars).
If the program is implemented, all citizens of the country will have access to the Internet with the speed of incoming and outgoing connections of 50 and 10 Mbit / s, respectively. Also, residents of Canada will have improved mobile wireless technologies available both at home and on the road.
750 million dollars within five years will be invested in the development of infrastructure in regions where it does not yet meet the above parameters. This will help in realizing the right of citizens to receive information, which consumers and individual entrepreneurs will be able to use to create new business opportunities.
