Matawa Communities look to Strengthen Telecommunications Infrastructure with Broadband Development Project

Thunder Bay, ON: The nine Matawa First Nations face a significant digital divide, especially the remote communities that are on satellite and microwave internet services that lack quality services like speed and reliability. As self-determining and autonomous, the First Nations are building broadband systems to deliver better public services to community members. To address this challenge, Matawa First Nations Management is working with the member First Nations toward a locally driven broadband development plan.
