Funding from the federal government’s Universal Broadband Fund (UBF) is only available for those communities deemed eligible by the federal government, e.g. those communities with speeds of less than 50/10. Unfortunately, there are a number of communities in the region noted as ineligible. We have identified 16 of the ineligible communities where a last mile fibre project could potentially connect rural residents if funding was sought through UBF. Those communities are ineligible because the federal government believes that residents have access to speeds of 50/10. 

 

We think that many of the residents in these communities do not have access to speeds of 50/10. In order to address this issue, and submit a funding application to UBF by the upcoming deadline of Feb. 15, we need to gather speed test data from residents by the end of January – in fact, from 20% of residents in each community. These residents need to complete a simple speed test and upload the results. This is the process set out by the federal government for disputing the mapping/ineligibility.
