Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our King Connects survey which was designed to collect information on local internet speeds. We received more than 500 responses which shows high-speed connectivity in King Township is important to many residents.
We will continue to work with the regional, provincial and federal levels of government – along with commercial internet service providers – to look for ways to improve local high-speed coverage for King Township residents.
On Monday, March 20th a report is going to Council to support York Region's application to the Connect to Innovate Fund - click here to read the report

Canada's telecom regulator (CRTC) recently declared that high-speed internet is now a basic service, just like a current landline.
The issue in King is that large pockets of land – mainly in rural areas – don't currently have access to high-speed internet. Some areas don't have access to the internet at all.
That's why we are trying to access federal grant money to build more high-speed internet infrastructure in King. To do this, we need to collect data on areas in King that don't currently have access to high-speed internet.
