High-speed Internet access expanded in Port Rowan area


NORFOLK COUNTY – The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing more than $1.2 million to bring reliable high-speed internet to 927 families, farms and businesses in Norfolk County.

The federal and provincial governments have partnered with Southwest Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT) Inc. and have announced that residents in Long Point now have the broadband infrastructure required to access high-speed internet service.

This announcement marks the completion of two more projects under SWIFT and builds on the Ontario government’s plan to get the right infrastructure in the right places – ensuring people can live, work and farm where they want.

The contracts to expand broadband services in Norfolk County were awarded by SWIFT, a not-for-profit corporation, initiated by local municipalities to address connectivity in Southwestern Ontario.

“We are pleased to announce in partnership with the governments of Ontario and Canada the successful completion of a high-speed fiber-optic network in Norfolk County,” said Gary McNamara, Board Chair, SWIFT. “The newly installed broadband infrastructure will deliver significant benefits to the community, providing a solid foundation for economic growth and innovation while enhancing the overall quality of life for residents. We are proud to have been a part of this vital project and look forward to seeing the benefits it brings to the people of Norfolk County.”

“We look forward to more of these announcements to ensure everyone in Haldimand-Norfolk is up to speed so they can run their farms, their businesses and their households,” said Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Bobbi Ann Brady.
