Nordicity discusses the Mackenize Valley Broadband Project with CBC North
Posted by Nordicity in Ottawa on Jan 16, 2015

Nordicity's Stuart Jack discussed the Mackenize Valley Broadband project with CBC North on January 15, 2015. In the interview Mr. Jack indicated - based on Nordicity’s Northern Connectivity Study in the 3 territories, that while enhanced connectivity is essential for northern residents (more so than in the south), the Government of the Northwest Territories needs to provide additional information. This information should include pricing of services & contracts with ‘anchor tenants’ showing to tax payers and outside investors that the federal government's business plan is sustainable. Nordicity’s study showed that ongoing subsidies for residential users might be required. Information provided by the Government of Northwest Territories - to date, has been limited to completion date, cost, operators.
