The Fastest, High Speed Internet Arrives in the District of Shelburne and Town of Lockeport!

The Municipality of the District of Shelburne has partnered with Bell Canada and Develop Nova Scotia to bring the best high-speed internet available in Canada to approximately 95% of its residents and businesses, and it is anticipated this project will be completed within the next 11 months.

“Bell Canada has provided maps and expected timelines which can be found on the municipal website and social media. I encourage everyone to visit our website or to call our Municipal office for more information. We understand that this recent announcement will provide access to most residents and businesses, but not to everyone. We will continue to work with Bell Canada in submitting a proposal in May to Develop Nova Scotia to bring access to the rest of the Municipality. We know access to the internet is essential for the education of our youth, with the recruitment of professionals to the area, increasing economic development opportunities and will help us stay connected with family and friends”, stated Warden Penny Smith.

Mayor Harding of the Town of Lockeport is pleased to be partnering with the Municipality of the District of Shelburne, Develop Nova Scotia and Bell Canada in bringing this vital service to the residents and businesses within the Town.
