Rogers announced on Thursday the Quinte region of Ontario will soon have high-speed internet.
The communities of Quinte West, Belleville and Prince Edward County will get the Rogers fibre network, as part of a $140 million investment. The service will reach over 20,000 homes and businesses.
Services such as Rogers Ignite Internet with download speeds of up to 1.5 gigabit per second and Rogers’ leading IPTV service, Ignite TV, will be available once connectivity is complete.
“It is important that we continue to invest in our communities and today’s announcement will ensure that residents and businesses in Quinte West, Belleville and Prince Edward County have access to reliable internet,” said Phil Hartling, Executive Vice President, Service Expansion, Rogers Communications, in an issued statement.
Rogers says by the end of 2021, it will “bring reliable internet” to over 500,000 households in underserved and rural areas.
Those in rural areas can also sign up for SpaceX’s Starlink internet, as the satellite internet service continues to expand in Canada and globally.
