Broadband internet service has been declared a basic service for all Canadians.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission announced Wednesday that access to broadband is now considered a basic telecommunications service.

The CRTC also announced a new fund to help support projects to expand high-speed internet to rural and remote areas, which can be used to build new infrastructure or upgrade existing systems to meet the targets.
