Georgina Island First Nation – Broadband Extension Project Notice

Georgina Island First Nation was successful in securing funding under the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) –  Universal Broadband Fund to complete an extension of broadband internet infrastructure across the Island. The project will greatly improve broadband connectivity to all underserved households on the Island. This project builds off the success of the recently completed YorkNet extension project that brought fibre infrastructure to the Island which now services our community buildings.

Construction will begin the week of September 27th, 2021 and will continue into November 2021. Household hook-ups will be scheduled in the coming weeks.  We are asking that if you have any private utilities between the road and your house that was not previously marked with locate flags to contact us as soon as possible.

Please contact the internet service provider (ISP) Coextro at www.coextro.com/Georgina or 1-888-552-9516 for more information on how to sign-up for connection to broadband internet services.  The cut off date for signing up for the free installation is October 8, 2021.  After that the cost will be determined and you will be billed for the work prior to commencing.

Please contact Brian Lee, Senior Contract Administrator for S. Burnett & Associates Limited, at brian.lee@sbaengineering.com for any questions related to construction works.
