WPS Smart Community Initiative-Community Support Survey for Primary and Seasonal Residents
Thank you for visiting this site and taking this brief survey.

"Back by popular demand! The WPS Smartnow team have received several inquires about our survey as well as requests for the opportunity to provide input. We are very pleased with the interest that WPS Smartnow (the West Parry Sound Smart Community initiative) has generated. We have also learned that there are still many members of our community that have not heard of this initiative, or do not fully understand it.

Therefore, we are re-opening the survey. Your input would be very much appreciated.

What is a SMART community?
--It is a community that has internet capability that is: ultra high speed, affordable, and offers extensive capacity (no low usage caps, no latency)
--It is a community that uses this internet capability to: build sustainable economic development; to create good jobs; to enhance communications within and outside our community, to attract and retain talent and youth; to offer enhanced services such as healthcare, education, and to promote social well being.
What is our plan? To build a 175 km fibre optic backbone running through the seven municipalities in West Parry Sound. We have partnered with Vianet to build the backbone and provide internet based services (internet, phone, TV) at pricing similar to that paid in large urban centers in Ontario.
