Orford’s Parliamentary Assistant to the Prime Minister for High Speed Internet Component Jill Belanger is trying to be reassuring. According to him, this will be announced in a few weeks. He asserts that his government will make the service accessible to all communities by September 2022.
For these five municipalities, information may have been missing on the number of homes to be connected.
This possibility is rejected by the governor MRCBasque. According to Bertin Dennis, Project Manager at MRC Des Basques transmitted all information to the Quebec government.
Jill Belanger confirms that all contracts for the installation of high-speed Internet will be concluded by the end of 2021.
An interactive map will also be posted on the Quebec government website. This tool will allow the county resident to know which company will provide the service in their area and when the service will be available.
