According to the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), Canadian rural and remote areas do not have services comparable in speed, capacity, quality or price to what is offered in urban centres. To help solve this problem, the CRTC has established a Universal Service Objective: To close the remote/rural and urban digital divide, all Canadians in urban, rural and remote areas must have access to voice and broadband Internet access services, on both fixed and mobile wireless networks and in order to meet this objective, existing infrastructure across Canada needs to be upgraded and new infrastructure needs to be built.
In 2020, Canada invested $7 billion to provide high-speed broadband access to 100 percent of Canadian citizens in all provinces and territories by 2030. Canadian provinces, territories and municipalities, as well as corporations and broadband infrastructure developers and operators are ready to effectively leverage these funds. The FibreONE program provides these stakeholders with a competitive end-to-end solution that is in full compliance and alignment with government initiatives.
