Many small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) understand the importance of e-business in increasing revenue, improving productivity and reducing costs, yet may require assistance with acquiring the knowledge necessary for the implementation of these tools. As a result, Muskoka Community Network (MCN) offers the BEAM program to eligible SMEs who require assistance with e-business adoption.

5Mbps Broadband Enhancement Project
Recognizing that access to a fast, reliable and cost-effective Internet connection is an essential component of economic growth, Muskoka Community Network is working to bring speeds of at least five megabits per second (mbps) to the regions of Almaguin, Muskoka and Parry Sound. We are pleased to announce that MCN has selected local ISP, Core Broadband, and is now working to acquire resources.
Offering speeds over 1,000 mbps, gigabit technology means virtually instant downloads and significant economic growth opportunities for the region. Becoming a gigabit community can assist in the creation and retention of jobs in multiple sectors, support local innovation and provide investment attraction. The Gigabit Community Summit offered an examination of the opportunities of adopting gigabit technology in Muskoka, local support for gigabit and success stories of other communities that adopted this technology.
