On behalf of the city of Morden we are announcing that as of October 30, 2019, Morenet will be ceasing all operations. After examining the technical viability, costs, regulatory requirements, and associated risks we did not feel that as a long-term solution Morenet would be a fit for the City of Morden to operate as a public entity, particularly as the city continues to grow. The city of Morden will continue to explore opportunities to recuperate or redirect the initial investment to maximize the connectivity of city-owned buildings and facilities so we can continue to provide efficient public services.
Effective immediately, there will be no new Morenet connections and all existing connections will cease functioning as of October 30, 2019. The city of Morden has had extensive conversations with technical experts throughout this process to help determine what our options were and what would be best for our citizens. Morden City Council remains committed to ensuring that citizens have access to high-speed internet and will continue to seek out options to that end. We want to thank the people of Morden for their patience throughout this time and ask that if you have further questions please pick up an FAQ sheet at the Civic Centre or check here at mordenmb.com/morenet for up to date information.
