Rogers offers low-cost, high-speed internet to thousands in Waterloo Region

Adam Haga - 570 NEWS

Thousands of people living in affordable housing in Waterloo Region are getting a break on their internet bill.

12,000 low-income households qualify for the ‘Rogers’ Connected for Success program’, which will allow them to purchase high-speed internet for $9.99 monthly.

Cambridge Mayor Doug Craig says having access to the web is just as important as having a roof over your head, and water to drink.

“It’s all about information.. it’s all about bringing the outside world, in. Having access to the internet opens a world of possibilities.”

Meantime, Regional Chair Ken Seiling says the program will empower our region to come together.

“Also to stay connected, to stay involved, and to help them learn more and be more active in the community. Internet access is such an important service and this collaboration will help many people in our community improve their quality of life.”

Waterloo Region is the 190th housing provider to partner with Rogers for the ‘Connected for Success’ program.
