Connectivity in B.C.

Connectivity is critical for everyone in British Columbia regardless of where they live. High-speed internet is needed for many aspects of our daily lives, supporting us to work, learn at home and school, access services and do business. Access to cellular connectivity is also vital, especially along highways, to help us remain connected and safe when we are on the move, and access emergency services when we need them.

Some British Columbians, particularly in rural, remote and Indigenous communities, lack access to high-speed internet or cellular services. The BC Government works to address this by offering funding programs to support connectivity infrastructure expansion. The Province also supports local and Indigenous governments with their connectivity planning.
