Intervention: SANNY Internet Service

I live in a very remote northern community and we have Internet service provided by the Qiniq network. This is a satellite based connection which is available in ALL Nunavut communities unlike Northwestel's Netkaster satellite Internet which is not available here.The Qiniq network has been available for many years now and their last major upgrade saw upload and download speeds increase dramatically and the monthly usage increased to 10 Gb's per month for the basic plan. I think this is just as good as any community in southern Canada and it is affordable to almost everyone.I have read newspaper articles about the "proposed" fiber-optic line trans versing Northern Canada and a spur line would travel south down the west coast of Quebec past our community and connect to the backbone of the Internet near Val D'Or Quebec. I wholeheartedly support this plan IF we could connect with this as we would then BE THE BACKBONE of the Internet.
