Despite a decade of promises, high-speed internet expansion in Canada has been painfully slow. Today, 3.4 million Canadians still don’t have access to high-speed internet in their communities. Rural and remote residents are paying outrageously high prices for slow internet with low data caps. Many pay as much as $100 per month for a 1 Mbps connection.
Canada Post offices are secure locations that could be adapted to house broadband internet servers, extending high-speed internet service farther than the big for-profit telecoms are willing to go. In today’s world, high-speed internet is a human right.
And our post office can deliver it. The Canada Post Corporation Act, which created Canada Post Corporation, and the Canadian Postal Services Charter, mandate the postal service to adapt to our society’s communications needs as they change.
