Legault mentioned that during his 2018 campaign for premier, the CAQ promised that "by 2022, every Quebecer will be connected to high-speed internet." 

"It's even more urgent after the pandemic than before the pandemic that everyone in Quebec, in every region of Quebec, can have high-speed internet," said the premier. 

Several companies including Bell, Cogeco, and Videotron will partner up with the governments to install high-speed internet in the regions that need it.
