Canada’s most wired cities

  1. For your information, nearly all of Prince Edward Island, both rural and urban areas, are now wired for broadband thanks in large part to a 2007 election campaign promise. I suspect that your 88.5% penetration number for Charlottetown is, in fact, far closer to 100%. There are very few residences in the province that do not have access to broadband of some sort, either wireless or wired.
