Rossland broadband community forum

Find out what the Rossland broadband initiative is all about at a community forum on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Miners’ Union Hall.

A very high speed, open network for the City of Rossland.

A network controlled locally, not by telecoms, that may be up to 80 times faster than the average service and can offer more services.

Want more details and to find out why you should care? Join the Rossland Broadband task force and city council to find out what the Rossland broadband initiative is all about at a community forum on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Miners’ Union Hall.

Ask questions. Give feedback. This is a chance for business owners, individuals, students, basically anyone interested in exploring the benefits and risks of super high speed Internet service.

What are the tax implications? What are the economic and social opportunities for the community? What are the industry trends and considerations?

Who will be able to access the service and what are the plans to expand services?

Those questions will be answered Sept. 10. Representatives of the task force, city council and the Columbia Basin Broadband corporation will be in attendance.
