Anyone hearing anything on this or did it disappear? I have not seen any new fibre being hung in my direction. I will be happy to admit I was wrong if rural PEI does get adequate bandwidth. I doubt our provincial overlords really understand how much it costs to deploy equipment sufficient to bring real high speed Internet to the country.

From the CBC July 11,2018:

The provincial government will soon issue a request for proposals (RFP) for a company or companies to help enhance internet service in rural parts of the province. It is the latest step in government’s ongoing work to improve internet service for all Islanders.

Xplornet could be the disrupter if there is a business case to be made. They are already providing 25 meg DL to those living in an area they service. I am fortunate I do and am entirely satisfied with their tech and service. However, I want more.
