Internet speeds and cell connectivity matter to your business. Whether you’re running an e-commerce website or communicating with your team in the field, you need fast, reliable, and affordable solutions, and we want to help. Economic Development Cowichan (EDC) is developing a Cowichan Internet and Cellular Connectivity Strategy that will be the roadmap to better connectivity for the whole region.
Over the next five months, EDC and consultants IBI Group will review the current state of internet and cellular infrastructure and services available in Cowichan, as well as engage with the community to uncover our collective vision for the future of connectivity for the region. Armed with this information, we will develop a strategy to meet Cowichan’s connectivity needs. We will also identify communities within Cowichan that are particularly underserved, so we can take a deeper dive into solutions that fit their unique circumstances.
We need your help to make this project a success! We’re hosting a Virtual Open House on April 28 at 6:30pm where we’ll look at the current state of connectivity in Cowichan and uncover why connectivity is important to people in our region. Visit planyourcowichan.ca/connect to register for the open house. The project website also gives you the opportunity to identify your connectivity needs in a survey and share your ideas. Whether you have great internet, or no connection at all, EDC wants to hear from you!
