Kimberley to Wasa Fibre Optic Backbone Project

To improve connectivity, local governments and the Trust have partnered with the Province of BC to extend a fibre optic backbone network into the Kimberley and Wasa area to serve as a high-speed launching platform for Internet Service Providers wishing to offer their services to residents or businesses in the area.

This project has received funding from the federal government through the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, the provincial government through the Connecting BC program, the Regional District of East Kootenay and the Trust.
