The Regional Broadband Newsletter: CATA Partnered Round-up of News & Ideas to Create Successful Broadband Development


In view of the importance of Broadband Networks, we are launching
The Regional Broadband Newsletter aimed at opportunities for rural and remote communities, focusing for the first issue on Nova Scotia.

 In this issue you will find:

  • Kings Municipality’s interest in the “Smart Cities Challenge”;
  • The “Connect To Innovate” funding for communities in Newfoundland and Manitoba
  • Examples of new rural projects in Canada, America, and the U.K.

Access the Newsletter at: https://tinyurl.com/y888vsvl

We feel it is important to follow these developments because today Broadband is:

  • The key to economic growth: most of today’s growth comes from networked innovation;
  • The new marketplace: companies like Amazon, Google, and Airbn dominate their sectors; and
  • The hinge of rural success: up to half of all rural job loss is due to a lack of Internet.

You may also benefit from viewing CATA conversations with thought leaders who will inspire new ways for rural areas to match urban advances, and for urban centres to leapfrog their global rivals. Our mission is to create world-class Smart Cities through embracing best practices around the globe and to define opportunities to sell technologies and solutions to the high growth Smart City marketplace.
