We would like to share some exciting updates with the people of Annapolis County. Residents can expect to start receiving high-speed Internet with speeds up to 1Gbps as early as this coming spring!
The initial planning & design phase carried out by the Annapolis team, comprised of the county, Hatch Ltd., and Eagle Telecom Ltd., has been completed. The construction phase which involves running fibre optic cables and connection nodes, is also nearing completion, and Seaside Communications will soon begin connecting customers with high speed internet.
