More Nova Scotian’s might have more access to internet soon.

The Satellite Internet Service Rebate program is expanding again.

Starting today applications will be accepted from any business or resident who doesn’t currently have access to internet.

“Our government is committed to extending internet access to every household and business in Nova Scotia,” said Economic Development Minister Susan Corkum-Greek.
“This program expansion will bridge the gap for those currently without high-speed internet and allow them to gain access sooner as we work to achieve internet for everyone.”

The rebate will cover the one-time cost for those eligible, to set up satellite internet, including the hardware, shipping, installation and tax

up to a maximum of $1000.

Until today the program only applied to those where there was no other internet service solution or where high speed internet wasn’t expected until 2024

Nova Scotia residents who are interested should confirm they are eligible online at https://internet.developns.ca/satellite and entering their home or business address, before purchasing equipment.
