I live in rural Ontario very close to the GTA, I have recently started a small home-based business which is going very well. However it relies heavily on the internet. Currently there is only one high speed Internet provider where I live and the price is much higher than if I were to live in Toronto, for instance. It is also frustratingly slow and unreliable. I hear in the news that that rural economies and small businesses have yet to take advantage of online opportunities. Maybe the lack of inexpensive, reliable and fast internet service is the reason.
