“The rolling hills of Northumberland that set our community apart also create complex challenges for the effective and affordable delivery of internet services to our residents and businesses. Addressing gaps in local access to broadband connectivity is a priority for Northumberland County and area municipalities. We look forward to the roll-out of this project through CENGN as an excellent opportunity to test and demonstrate how new technologies can overcome current barriers to service delivery.” – Bob Crate, Warden, Northumberland County

“High-speed internet connectivity is essential to local economic recovery from COVID-19, and to building equitable and vibrant rural communities. The Township of Alnwick/Haldimand welcomes this project as an immediate investment in broadband access for people in the Shelter Valley Road area, and as an opportunity to explore innovative new solutions for high speed connectivity for unserved and underserved communities.” – Gail Latchford, Mayor, Township of Alnwick/Haldimand

"As the provincial response to the COVID-19 outbreak continues, people are relying on the internet to access essential services, facilitate online growth of small businesses, and connect with family and friends. I am pleased to join CENGN, Algonquin Fiber and Northumberland County in announcing their project that will bring high-performance broadband access to the Shelter Valley Road region of the Township of Alnwick/Haldimand. This innovative project will significantly improve services for residents in that underserved area of the township." – David Piccini, MPP, Northumberland-Peterborough South
