For many rural residents, internet and cell service sucks. Farmers and other rural businesses suffer. Children have difficulty participating in online learning.
For the past couple years, the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan has been meeting with key experts and service providers in the telecommunications industry to address the issue of rural connectivity. APAS recently released the final report from its Rural Connectivity Task Force.
The Saskatchewan Farm Writers Association hosted a Zoom meeting on April 13, 2021 to explore the APAS recommendations. Watch the recording below.
