But not all Internet access is created equal. Many people in Eastern Ontario have slow Internet connections that don't support today's innovations. That's why the Eastern Ontario Wardens' Caucus  created EORN. Our mission is to provide higher speeds and bandwidth to at least 95 per cent of homes and businesses in Eastern Ontario. The network has been built with the support of federal, provincial, municipal, and private sector partners.

EORN includes:

  • A 5,500-km network of new and existing fibre optic cable, with 160 new access points for Internet Service Providers.
  • High-speed Internet services for residents and businesses through wired, wireless or satellite technology, depending on the best fit for the area. EORN has negotiated with Internet service providers to increase coverage area, bandwidth and speed, therefore bridging the urban-rural price gap.

Residents and businesses will be able to connect to the network by directly contacting their local Internet service provider (ISP). To find out which EORN ISP partners are available in your area, please use our availability map .
