People who live up and down the B.C. coast and on Vancouver Island will soon have access to much faster internet.
The provincial and federal government announced joint funding of $45.4 million to provide 154 areas with new or upgraded high-speed internet.
"Backbone networks are like digital highways that move data in and out of communities, and the data highways are essential for schools, hospitals, clinics, libraries and other businesses," said Minister of Indigenous Services Jane Philpott.
"We want everyone to have fair and reliable access to high-speed internet in British Columbia."
