Connectivity: Internet and Cell phones

Our members are clear, access to high speed internet and cell phone coverage is critical for all communities.  It can assist in supporting public safety, economic development, health care, education and public services.  Many consider connectivity an essential service.

The resolution speaks to the necessity of dealing with this issue. Yet municipal capacity to address this issue varies across the province.

NSFM is planning a workshop in the fall to provide information to municipalities that will assist them in determining their response to the issue.
