The Town of Tecumseh is seeking four community members for a Rural Broadband Advisory Committee.

In recent years there have been improvements to internet service however, there are still many areas of Tecumseh that are underserved. The Town’s Strategic Plan includes an endorsement to advocate for broadband connectivity in areas of the municipality that are currently underserved.

The Committee will provide recommendations, advice and information to Council on matters related to broadband connectivity issues with the opportunity to enhance and augment any studies or proposals now and in the future. The Committee will work in collaboration with Council and Administration on developing a plan to identify possible solutions and programs to support enhanced connectivity in the Town.

“Over the last year, across North America, we saw just how important strong virtual connections are,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “Despite the efforts of a number of service providers to connect areas of Town, we still have limited connectivity in rural areas. We hope that this Committee will assist Council in lobbying for better service in rural areas within Tecumseh.”

Applications are available now on the Town’s website www.tecumseh.ca/tecumsehruralbroadbandcommittee with a deadline of Thursday, May 27th, 2021.
