  • Business in York Region are at a distinct disadvantage – not having access to broadband networks means that it is more expensive for them to operate in our area - $200/month vx. $1-2K/month for dedicated fibre. Businesses in Tillsonburg and Georgina have faster Internet access than in Newmarket, Aurora, and the rest of the N6. Beyond just connectivity for business: Dr. Williams: I can not do telerobotic surgery at Southlake today because of lack of infrastructure. Jeremy Laurin, ventureLab – the Regional Innovation Centre for York Region has no access to high speed R&D networks. Our post-secondary institutions/campuses in York Region do not have access to high speed R&D networks. This is a barrier to innovation, investment attraction, and growth.
