Following six months of research into the causes of poor rural internet and cellular service, APAS has released the final report and recommendations of its Rural Connectivity Task Force (RCTF). The RCTF’s findings will be presented at a virtual press conference on Wednesday March 31 at 11:00 am CST. Access the press conference here.
“We’ve spent months meeting industry experts and researching the issue of rural connectivity,” says Task Force Chair Jeremy Welter, who farms near Kerrobert, SK. “That work has resulted in 43 recommendations that will help improve rural internet and cell service in Saskatchewan.”
The RCTF recommendations were ratified by the APAS membership at the 2021 APAS Annual Meeting on March 30.
