A Saskatchewan woman who farms with her husband east of Weyburn says there’s a need for improved Internet service in rural areas of Canada.
Leeann Minogue says people living in cities and towns don’t think twice about downloading large files or videos, but on farms, download speeds using towers and dishes are much slower than broadband internet.
Minogue compares the current internet situation to a few decades ago when other utilities had poorer service in rural areas.
She says things like phone and power all came to rural Saskatchewan after a fight. She says it’s probably going to take a lot of lobbying and private investment.
