The Top Five Benefits of High-Speed Internet to First Nations + Rural Communities:
1. Improving Health and Wellness (Via rapid Access to Information)
2. Ability to Access Higher Education (Online Learning and Training)
3. Greater Business Opportunities (Economic Development)
4. Local and Global Social Networking (Real-Time News Feeds)
5. Limitless Potential (A Game-changer)
In 2008 only 85 of 203 BC's First Nations communities had access to high-speed Internet. Today 93% of British Columbians browse the internet via a fibre-optic broadband infrastructure. More over, 184 First Nations communities now have complete access to the technology-forward speed and stability of fibre-optics.
The BC Government partnered with Telus, BC Hydro and All Nations Trust Company in late 2014 to ensure the "Nine Island Nations" are wired and Internet-ready for a Brave New World burgeoning with limitless opportunities by 2016. These nations currently have no or limited access to the Internet. The fibre-optic connection will connect the west coast of Vancouver and Vancouver Island from Prince Rupert to Ucluelet
From eHealth to eLearning to business development to social engagement, on a global scale, the BC Government is committed to providing high-speed internet to 100% of British Columbians by 2021.
