The City of Spruce Grove awoke to an early Christmas with $4.25 million geared toward broadband infrastructure wrapped neatly under their tree.

Minister of Municipal Affairs Tracy Allard announced the City will receive a total of $4,251,472 to expand the fibre optic network in the city’s commercial and industrial areas.

“This significant support from the provincial government will contribute greatly to the recovery of our local and regional economy. Investing in a fibre optic network in our industrial and commercial districts is critical to economic sustainability. This network will enhance Spruce Grove’s market competitiveness by helping attract and retain talent, as well as drive new investments and business development,” said City of Spruce Grove Mayor Stuart Houston.

The project will provide reliable and affordable high speed broadband services and provide the basis for the extension of 5G and Smart Cities.
