Internet to the Business Hub in North Queens, Nova Scotia is limited to DSL, whereas it needs a high-speed fibre connection to attract and serve clients. At the same time, areas around the village have only dial-up, or very poor fixed wireless service. There are plans in progress to improve service along main highways, but even if this happens there will be many outlying households and businesses with no improvement­- some other technology will still be required. The North Queens TVWS Project serves the dual benefit of improving internet to the Business Hub, and using that connection to test the range and efficacy of TVWS (Television White Space) hardware in field testing. This project will benefit the local community, decision-makers at government level, and industry.
