Announced May 15, 2017: From the news release:

“The province is improving access to high-speed broadband connectivity in schools across Ontario – particularly in northern, rural and remote schools – to provide all students with reliable and equitable access to learning resources.

Improving broadband connectivity and access ensures that students from every region of the province have equitable access to online information, courses and resources needed for 21st century learning.

Depending on the needs of individual schools, infrastructure upgrades will include:

  • Investing in new fibre optic infrastructure to connect schools to an internet service provider
  • Improving network capacity to handle large amounts of data required to use new technologies in the classroom
  • Ensuring a broadband speed of 1 Megabit per second per student and updating the network design to be more student-friendly
