The City of Pembroke and the Town of Petawawa are among 10 new Eastern Ontario communities to join Rogers 5G service network.

As the chairwoman of the Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus, Robinson added that the partnership between Rogers, the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN), the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario, will allow residents to take full advantage of everything 5G has to offer. The health-care system, our emergencies services and our educational system will all benefit from these improvements, she said.
