The city is investing $400 million in internet equipment to ensure Toronto has the fastest internet speeds in North America.
It’s part of the city’s $3.5 billion investment in broadband, which will include upgrading the citywide network.
Toronto’s internet is currently about 60 per cent of the country’s.
It uses fibre optics, which are faster and more flexible than copper and have lower latency.
The city also plans to offer its fibre internet service to the public.
“We are making a big investment here to ensure that the city of Toronto has an internet infrastructure that is up to the task of supporting the population,” said Michael Delaney, Toronto’s senior vice-president of government and community relations.
Delaney says the city is working with wireless companies to offer wireless internet to the city.
“It’s a good investment that we’re making in terms of the investment in infrastructure.”
He says the upgrade will be rolled out in phases over the next two years, adding that a network upgrade is being planned for the end of 2021.
The network upgrade, which is expected to cost about $2 billion, will be funded by a $1 billion loan from the province.
