The high cost of providing infrastructure for residents in and around rural and remote communities in B.C. has been identified by municipal governments, First Nations, Regional Districts, regional Internet service providers, and community advocates as one of the key barriers to expanding internet services.

The Connecting British Columbia program helps pay for infrastructure required to deliver high-speed internet connectivity to rural and remote areas of the province.
