Telecommunications

Lakeshore connects you.

Whether you need fibre, cable, DSL, or satellite service, there are a number of companies available to service your business needs.

Regardless of the size of your community, your age, education, or where you work, you deserve access to high-speed broadband.  South Western Integrated Fibre Technology (SWIFT) is a project initiated by the Western Ontario Wardens Caucus (WOWC), in partnership with The Southwest Economic Alliance (SWEA) to build an ultra high-speed fibre optic regional broadband network for everyone in Western Ontario.

SWIFT will be open access for all providers and users, and rates will be published for all to see. Ongoing competition and full transparency generates more selection, better services, more choices and lower prices. The service fees paid by users and providers will be reinvested in expanding fibre connectivity to everyone, lowering rates and ensuring SWIFT is self-sustaining.


Windsor Essex, including Lakeshore was awarded Top 7 Intelligent Community of the Year in 2011.
