"Lightning Speed" in Saint Francois Xavier... Not.

Saint Francois is literally dying for internet. With the new developments wired for fiber optic, we are still getting the slow 5mb down 1 up which is still unreachable.

A growing community in between Elie (which is much further and has highspeed) and Headingley. It's literally 10 minutes from the west Perimeter and we have such awful internet.

What are the chances of this being on the upgrade list.

There are reports elsewhere on this community site that Bell MTS has plans for service improvements in some rural areas. Not sure if St Francois Xavier is on there list. That said, the improvements are basically tweaks to the existing service that make the 5 MB down, 1 MB up more obtainable. It definitely is not something that will get you anywhere near the "minimum" 50/10 standard to CRTC has targeted for every Canadian by 2031.
