Map and Timeline

To build the network, the region was divided into 15 local access zones. The following map outlines when each zone will be finished and the names of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) building the local networks. Most local access networks are nearly complete, with delays on small portions of some zones due to local approval processes and/or other logistics. Even if a zone isn’t fully built, expanded services may still be available. Click on the zone name for more details on its progress.

The entire project is to be completed in 2014, with opportunities for future growth. Contracts were awarded to ISPs who demonstrated that they would invest in building local access networks that will reach to the greatest number of households. However, all ISPs will have equal access to the fibre optic backbone in order to expand their services.

Important notes:
*In some areas, more than one ISP was awarded a contract in order to reach as many households as possible. Please note that not all listed ISPs will be available throughout an entire zone. As well, in many zones, services from other ISPs are also available.
