Broadband workshop next month

  • Oct. 29, 2004 8:00 a.m.

There’ll be a workshop in Queen Charlotte December 17 for anyone interested in how the broadband internet will affect the community.
The province recently contributed $250,000 to the BC Community Connectivity Co-operative (BC3), a non-profit society whose goal is to help un-connected communities get the resources and tools they need to get their communities connected to high-speed internet. The money will go toward the workshops, which will be held all across rural and northern BC.
According to BC3, broadband internet could profoundly affect the standard of living and stimulate the economy by making it possible to access markets, work from home, get a degree via internet, consult a doctor at any time, and generally keep connected with what’s happening in the world.
