With this project, the City of Brooks will become one of the first 10 Gbps rural communities in Canada, positioning it as an attractive location for knowledge-based industries and residents who value affordable high-speed connectivity along with an affordable, well-balanced lifestyle rooted in community.
BrooksNET’s mission to build a secure and well-maintained network stems from the community’s constant struggle to get uninterrupted, reliable, and ultra-fast internet. Small communities are often neglected by major telecommunication service providers that primarily focus on larger and more profitable urban centres.
First, we would like to recognize Crown Capital and their wholly-owned subsidiary Community Network Partners Inc. (CNPI). Crown Capital saw the opportunity that existed within the City of Brooks as an underserved broadband community and was willing to invest over $15 million. CNPI was born out of a passion to support Canadians living in rural and remote areas by giving them access to the kinds of network technology typically only available in large urban centers. Their expertise will be used to manage and operate the fibre-optic network to ensure 24/7/ 365 service.
