The pandemic has highlighted the digital divide between urban and rural areas, with many remote and indigenous communities having limited or no broadband access. Join us for this series as members of our infrastructure practice and key industry stakeholders share their latest insights and experiences in solving the broadband infrastructure gap.
Governments struggling to balance their budgets cannot solve the broadband infrastructure gap alone. There’s not enough money and governments are not experienced constructors or operators of broadband networks. Join us as we welcome special guests from Canada Infrastructure Bank, Meridiam Infrastructure and National Bank Financial to discuss existing and emerging models for structuring and financing broadband infrastructure projects.
