Old Rails, Trails, and Broadband: The Story of Manitouwadge's Multi-Use Trail
December 2, 2020 - What does high-speed internet service and snowmobiling have in common? No, it’s not a trick question. The Township of Manitouwadge, in partnership with Northern Broadband Wireless, found a way to combine the two by using a decommissioned rail bed, now turned multi-use trail. With the repurposing of the old rail bed, Manitouwadge became connected in more ways than one – both through broadband internet access and a snowmobile route linking it to other parts of the region.
