High-speed internet is changing the way we live, work and play.  Access to affordable, reliable and unlimited high-speed internet service is a necessity for all communities – plain and simple.  

Whether you’re at home, at work, on the road or on your smartphone, you should be able to connect and you should have access to broadband speeds of at least 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload.

The Corridor du Nord Broadband Project is seeking to provide access to broadband speeds that meet federal targets (Learn More) to households between Smooth Rock Falls and the Lac Ste. Thérèse-Jogues-Coppell areas* (See Map).

The initiative is being led by the Township of Moonbeam in partnership with the communities of Smooth Rock Falls, Fauquier-Strickland, Kapuskasing, Val Rita-Harty, Opasatika and Mattice Val-Côté.    
 
The survey is seeking responses from residents between the areas of Smooth Rock Falls and the Lac Ste. Thérèse-Jogues-Coppell areas that do not have access to the minimum federal broadband targets. (See Map)

The data collected from the survey will be aggregated and utilized to support funding applications.  Individual responses will remain confidential and will not be shared. 

How and Where to Return Hard Copy Surveys

Completed printed surveys can be scanned and sent by email to: survey@corridordunordbroadband.ca
or returned in-person to your municipal office.

*The map is based on information gathered from the CRTC.  The shaded areas on the map indicate areas that do not have access to 50/10 broadband speeds.  It is suggested that the other areas between Smooth Rock Falls and the Lac Ste. Thérèse-Jogues-Coppell have access to 50/10 broadband speeds.  The project however understands that some households do not fall within the shaded areas and do not have access to these speeds.  It is therefore even more important that these households fill out the survey. 
 
The survey is being conducted by Ontario North Consulting on behalf of the Corridor du Nord Broadband Project.
