Service Alberta is administering a survey to gather information from key stakeholders to help develop recommendations for a Provincial Broadband Strategy that reflects the needs and best interests of Albertans. This strategy is in response to a December 2016 Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) decision that determined broadband internet is a basic telecommunications service and set access targets including 90 per cent of Canadian homes and businesses having access to fixed broadband services by 2021, with download speeds of at least 50 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of at least 10 Mbps.
Service levels and quality of broadband service range throughout the province; therefore, following the CRTC decision, the Government of Alberta decided to work towards a future where every Albertan has access to a good quality internet connection.
The deadline to complete the survey is March 19, 2018.
Any questions about the survey can be directed to Claudette Dunsing, Manager, Provincial Broadband Strategy, Ministry of Service Alberta, by email at Claudette.firstname.lastname@example.org.
