County Council will consider on June 24 a request to support “SWIFT 2.0,” a plan seeking funding from all levels of government to build out high-speed Internet access that helps meet COVID-19’s urgent connectivity needs. Under SWIFT 2.0, broadband infrastructure would be added to a total of 8.4 km of road in Oxford County at a cost of $3.1 million, a proportionate share of the $26.3 million project total. In addition to financial support, the County is being asked to support funding advocacy on behalf of southwestern Ontario’s communities for more than $367 million in federal and provincial broadband funding.
SWIFT (Southwestern Integrated Fibre Technology) is a non-profit municipally-led broadband expansion project created to improve internet connectivity in underserved communities and rural areas across southwestern Ontario.
