Every part of B.C. to have high speed internet by 2027, government says 

VICTORIA-The federal and British Columbia governments are spending $830 million to provide access to high-speed internet across the province.

In a news release, the province says the plan means many First Nations communities will have high-speed internet access for the first time.

B.C. is promising that every home and community will have the service by 2027, which was also promised in the budget announced last month.

The funding will be evenly split between the federal and provincial governments, which will cover the cost of infrastructure including low-orbit satellites or fixed and fibre internet connected to homes and businesses.
