The Windsor-Essex County region has always understood the notion of “Connecting.”  The Windsor-Detroit Tunnel, The Ambassador Bridge, and the Connecting Windsor-Essex Fibre Optic network are all evidence of this
In 1994, Connecting Windsor-Essex began as an information technology project, focused primarily on building an extensive high-speed fibre optic network that would bring world-class connectivity to several of the region’s leading institutions. Click here to learn more about CW-E
