The Kenora District Services Board is launching the second round of rebates for high-speed internet.

People who purchased a Starlink system on or after September 1st, 2022 can receive a rebate of 75 or up to 90 percent on federal lands, towards the cost of the system.

The rebate also covers the cost of shipping and taxes paid.

Henry Wall is the Chief Administrative officer of the KDSB and says they received funding from the federal government to launch the second round of rebates.

“This initiative supports the importance of being connected and how vital digital access to resources and services are for families and individuals in the region in their everyday lives,” says Wall

The program will opens today and closes on November 3rd, or until the project funding is used up.

The rebate will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.

Those interested in applying must provide:

  • Proof of kit purchase on or after September 1, 2022
  • Photo of installed Starlink kit
  • Location of installed Starlink kit (Google Plus Code or Street Address)
