Ontario: "High-speed Internet service set for rural Elgin residents"

"Rural Elgin County residents will soon stop having to juggle a high-speed world with impossibly slow Internet access. A federal grant of $650,000 is the last piece of the funding puzzle to provide high-speed access to residents who increasingly need it for business and education, but whose rural location makes that impossible.

"'We're leaping from the last century to the next one,' said project manager Donna Lunn of the Elgin Community Futures Development Corp. The federal money 'is the final link we needed' to bring $4.8 million worth of high-speed service to 18 Elgin communities, including three First Nations communities, she said. The money will enable her group to build and install a fibre-optic backbone from one end of Elgin to another, probably within a year. Amtelcom of Aylmer will build the infrastructure and provide the service, she said.
