We want to know what's really going on
Many residents of NWT communities face extremely slow and expensive Internet. According to Internet Performance Testing run by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), Internet speeds in these northern and remote communities are among the slowest in Canada.
But despite everyone knowing about slow Internet speeds, there is limited reliable information available about user-level connectivity services in NWT communities.
Help policy makers make the right decisions
The lack of data makes it difficult for policy makers and researchers to identify which communities — and which homes and organizations inside those communities — are facing these challenges.
Help us address this gap - #NWTDigitalDivide
