The Municipality of Chester recognizes the importance of reliable, high-speed internet for residents, businesses, and organizations in our communities. We help facilitate rural internet projects in our Municipality by supporting provincial and federal government agencies who lead the development of internet infrastructure with private sector internet service providers.
Our support may take several forms: financial partnership for internet projects; communications and research support; and information-gathering about areas unserved/underserved by high speed internet. Now that several projects are underway, we encourage you to let us know if your community has limited or no access to high speed internet service and we can advocate for further internet projects in your area.
Rural internet projects underway or recently announced are outlined on our project page. All updates will be posted there.
