County broadband expansion timelines announced

By Haldimand Press Staff

HALDIMAND—Efforts to bring reliable high-speed internet access to all under-serviced areas of Haldimand County are moving forward with plans underway to begin installing the necessary infrastructure.

Since 2019, Haldimand County has been working to secure a vendor capable of delivering high-speed internet to the community. In June 2020, KWIC Internet was announced as the successful proponent and a Project Agreement was finalized with the County.

In the months ahead, Haldimand County staff and KWIC project leaders will be working closely to coordinate the installation of necessary infrastructure, including fibre trenching. KWIC will also be facilitating community consultations to determine the best placement for fixed wireless towers. Public consultation notices will be delivered to initial project build areas throughout December 2020.
