There are a lot of reasons to choose the City of Hamilton as your residential destination: breathtaking scenery, job opportunities, excellent golfing, shopping, schools, cultural venues, public transportation access, and attractive home and condominium prices, to name just a few. And now, with the announcement of the $400 million infrastructure investment by Bell Canada, add expanded broadband Internet access in urban and rural areas to the list. Over the next five years, Bell Canada will be installing fibre network connections to homes and businesses to benefit over 200,000 locations. And all of this will be done without taxing residents more.
Those who benefit from this expanded network will enjoy accessing up to 1.5 gigabits per second, the fastest in Canada. Whether you depend on the net for business reasons or to surf and play games, this might be the game-changer when it comes to your new condo purchase decision.
From the forests, conservation areas, waterfalls and Bruce Trail segment of the Niagara Escarpment to the factories that make Hamilton one of Canada’s leading industrial centres, the City is teeming with excitement and opportunities. The Conference Board of Canada has ranked Hamilton the top Canadian city for economic diversity. New restaurants, stores and other amenities are popping up as Hamilton’s population increases. Downtown, creative professionals and young people appreciate the reasonable rents they find there, making owning a condo as an investment a wise more. All residents appreciate having McMaster University in town, considering its faculty of medicine is ranked #2 in Canada’s top 40 research hospitals list. Golfing, festivals, events, museums, sports fields, a Farmers’ Market, artistic and cultural venues … the list of amenities is long and impressive.
And talk about location, location, location. Hamilton is about an hour and 15 minutes’ drive to Toronto, as well as under two hours from the U.S. border at Buffalo, NY. Being a port City, it boasts a beautiful waterfront. Among the transportation options you’ll find in Hamilton are bike-share and car-share possibilities.
The Bell Canada investment will be the biggest digital infrastructure investment in Hamilton’s history. Whether it’s for an investment or to live in, buy your condo now before prices rise across the City.
