Mandated on August 1, 2019 through a Matawa Chiefs Council resolution, Rapid Lynx Telecommunications has been working to prepare options for an extension to the long-haul fibre-optic network to include connecting Aroland, Constance Lake, Ginoogaming, and Long Lake #58 First Nations.

- Completion of network design
- Estimated costs of detailed engineering, permitting, construction and inspection
- Estimated costs for site preparation, new pre-fabricated equipment shelters, transport and set-up
