Fibre optic project to pave way for data center in Prince George BC


Federal and provincial commitments to funding installation of a fibre optic loop along Highway 97 from Prince George to Dawson Creek are being hailed as a major boost to attracting a data centre to this city.

Shaw Communications Inc. will received $7.1 million from the provincial government for the work, as well as $1.9 million for a similar project along Highway 99 to the south. The federal government committed $11.7 million to the two projects; how much of that total will go to the Highway 97 project was not immediately available.
