Rogers has announced that it will bring its broadband services to the communities of Drumbo and Gobles in Oxford County, Ontario.
The national carrier says it has been awarded its third partnership with Southwestern Integration Fiber Technology (SWIFT) and the federal and Ontario governments for the project.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with SWIFT and build our network to connect more Canadians in Southwest Ontario,” said Philippe Oille, President of Southwest Ontario Region in Rogers, in a blog post.
This is the third project that SWIFT has awarded Rogers to expand its network, after Dufferin and Norfolk counties earlier this year. Through a total joint investment of $ 9.87 million, Rogers will expand its access to the fiber optic network to all three counties.
In Oxford County, Rogers will expand its network by 15.4 kilometers and serve 484 homes and businesses in Drumbo and Gobles through a joint investment of $ 1.5 million.
Construction is expected to begin in January 2021 and be completed in March 2022.
