March 2018 Update – Clayton

April 22, 2018 / Comments (0)


In March, MM2020 made significant progress in discussions with service providers about bringing improved internet and cellular service to the Clayton area. A refresh of the web site is underway and more information will be available in the coming weeks.

  • 20 residents have volunteered so far to serve as ‘road representatives’, to inform their neighbours about the project and encourage them to complete our community survey.
  • The total number of households in our study area was confirmed at about 600.
  • We received completed surveys from 275 residents, representing 200 households in our study area and another 40 households outside our study area.
  • We distributed hundreds of Information flyers at the Clayton General Store and through road reps.
  • We continued to promote the online Community Survey via the website and MM2020 website. We also promoted the survey on the Union Hall outdoor sign during two weeks of March.
  • A technical committee was set up to support network design for broadband to Clayton.

Next steps:

  • Recruitment of additional volunteer road reps
  • Implement a communication strategy to tell our stories of inadequate internet and cellular service
  • Presentation to Mississippi Mills Council on April 17th
  • Plan a Community BBQ in late May to promote the project
