Team Selected to Plan High-Speed Internet for More Rural Communities


Government has selected a team to develop a strategy that will lead to better high-speed Internet service in more rural Nova Scotia communities.

Brightstar Canada and its partners will map assets, identify gaps and engineer a plan to connect the province’s core Internet network to the community level.

“We have to go beyond what we need today, and develop solutions that can handle how Nova Scotians will use the Internet in the future,” said Business Minister Mark Furey. “This team has the technical and project management experience we’ve been looking for and I know they are ready to address this challenge.”

Brightstar was selected through a competitive request for proposals which closed last month. The team is expected to deliver a strategy by spring.

While the strategy is being developed work continues to review 12 service-provider proposals that would provide more immediate improvements to Internet service. Those efforts will be coordinated and aligned with the strategy team’s work to deliver the maximum benefit for Nova Scotians.
