High-speed internet connections are a possibility in near future for Paradise Valley residents.
TELUS is submitting an application for funding assistance from the Connecting British Columbia Program to provide improved broadband connectivity and bring high-speed internet to Paradise Valley.
“Now more than ever, we understand the impact that improved connectivity makes on the thousands of British Columbians and Indigenous people living in BC and now working, learning and receiving healthcare from home,” said Ned Hodaly, a general manager with the company.
Once this network investment is operational, the infrastructure will enable community healthcare providers, educators, government administrations, and businesses to better deliver services and develop new solutions.
It would also allow more people to stay in the community while enabling more people with the decision to move to the area, he said. “The rollout of TELUS’ connectivity will provide life-changing and life-saving connectivity,” he said.
District of Squamish Council has also sent a letter to the Province expressing support for the application by TELUS to bring high-speed internet to Paradise Valley.
