The provincial Broadband for Rural Nova Scotia (BRNS) project has helped connect thousands of Nova Scotians to basic high speed Internet service since being launched in 2007. Now, 99% of Nova Scotians have access to basic high speed internet. BRNS was cost shared by the contracted service providers, together with the provincial and federal governments. The BRNS contracts expire in December 2014.
If you live in rural Nova Scotia, want high speed but don't have access yet, make sure you contact your BRNS Internet service provider.
