Thursday’s announcement of a $20 million federal-provincial project to connect every PEI property to high-speed internet was a welcome commitment to fixing one of the Island’s most pressing problems.

But it was likely met with a lot of rolled eyes and groans of “here we go again.”

Well, the provincial government happily writing fat cheques to either of the two biggest island utilities monopolies (or to the Murphy Group) and then sitting back and saying 'job done!' is par for the course. There's far better internet coverage in the highlands of the Dominican Republic than here. Even in rural Ukraine. And both of those utility monopolies constantly knock at IRAC's door requesting a rate increase so really, do they provide service... or extortion?
