Hey, it looks like broadband in Fredericton has resulted in the city attracting “numerous companies”. This is from a U.S. columnist who apparently knows all about Fredericton and its broadband:
I expect some people will be pretty surprised in a year about the breadth of jobs created by these grants. If you look at communities such as Greene County, N.C., Pulaski, Tenn., and Fredericton, Ontario in Canada, the greater number of jobs came not from building their networks, but from the networks’ significant influence attracting numerous companies into these areas. There was also a surge in home-based businesses.
I suspect that Frederictonians will be even more surprised to find out they have been collectively relocated to Ontario.
