Business and Broadband: Conference highlights and community assessment

On May 23 and 24 the "Northern 6� (N6) communities of Aurora, East Gwillimbury, King, Georgina, Newmarket and Whitchurch-Stouffville participated in conference titled Business and Bandwidth at the Kingbridge Conference Centre near King City. The sold-out two-day summit explored the concepts of Intelligent Communities and broadband.

The conference is part of the N6 business series, which is a collaborative effort between the six municipalities, the six Chambers of Commerce and York Region's Small Business Enterprise Centre (YSBEC).

Bandwidth refers to the capacity for data transfer using an electronic communications system. The term broadband is often used in this discussion to indicate a high-speed communications network. Intelligent Communities are those which are taking steps to create an economy capable of prospering in this new age of high-speed data connectivity.

Using the conference as a start, the N6 municipalities have begun an intelligent community assessment process, as a first step in investigating the potential of bringing high-speed broadband to northern York Region.
