The Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation has been working on attracting tech companies to the city, but Nanaimo is missing a key piece of infrastructure.
NEDC CEO Sasha Angus says tech companies need access to high speed internet.
Entrepreneur Christopher Davis owns Hyas Technology. He says without municipal broadband, he may be forced to set up shop somewhere else.
The NEDC has formed a roundtable that’s exploring the options for providing tech companies what they need to stay in Nanaimo, and what the city needs to attract more.
