South Western Integrated Fibre Technology Project
The South Western Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT) initiative is a project to build an ultra high-speed fibre optic Internet network for everyone in Western Ontario and Niagara. The project is being led by a partnership of 16 regional and local municipalities in Southern Ontario.
The project’s aim is to provide access to fibre-optic high-speed Internet access for 3.5 million Ontarians living in rural areas.
Niagara Region has signed on as a partner to the SWIFT project.
The SWIFT project will allow the creation of an extensive, cost-effective high-speed Internet network that will serve all of Niagara. This has wide-reaching economic benefits for Niagara, including
- Supporting the growth of small businesses in rural areas by expanding access to online and e-commerce tools
- Securing significant Federal and Provincial investment to improve Niagara’s information infrastructure
- Better connecting residents in rural communities with online information and services
