<Hebron, Nova Scotia>, <September 1, 2020> The Municipality of the District of Yarmouth (MODY) in partnership with the Municipalities of the Districts of Barrington and Digby, along with the Western Regional Enterprise Network (WREN), the Province of Nova Scotia and Develop Nova Scotia are pleased to announce 1,300 homes and businesses in rural parts of the Municipality will soon have access to Bell’s all-fibre network. This project is made possible through the Internet for Nova Scotia Initiative and an investment of more than $300,000 by the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth.
“Rural internet is MODY Council’s top strategic priority. We are thrilled that our collaborative efforts have paid off” said Chief Administrative Officer, Victoria Brooks. “We know that a community that is connected is a community that better supports economic development, new infrastructure and in-migration. It is great to see things moving along and we must keep up this momentum to see over 95% of Nova Scotia homes and businesses connected.”
“We are very excited to see this new development taking shape. As a Councillor for a rural community I have seen firsthand how lack of connectivity impedes on community growth and safety. Having internet access that is both reliable and easily accessible is a necessity and something myself, as well as other MODY councillors, feel very strongly about,” said John Cunningham, Deputy Warden of the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth.
The following areas of the Municipality will soon have access to high-speed Internet:
