Who We Are
7th Gen Technologies is an Internet Service Provider fully owned and operated by the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. Our goal is to provide fast, reliable, and affordable Internet connections to the Tyendinaga Mohawk community.
Connecting Our Community
In 2009, the Tyendinaga Mohawk Council passed a motion to begin planning on a fibre optic network that would span the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. These fibre optic lines were installed to provide a secure and reliable communications platform to replace the aging infrastructure that was installed in the 1950s. By providing a faster connection, our community has seen increased development in education, the economy, and entertainment.
We are the backbone of education in our community, providing teachers with online resources for students from preschool to university. We have opened the door to online education for post-secondary students, and we have provided a new platform to help our adult learners.
We are reshaping our economy by providing fast Internet connections to our businesses. Transactions are being processed through reliable connections and businesses are reaching out to new customers through online interactions and web hosting.
Through the increased capacity available on our network, we are providing our community with the ability to take their creativity to new levels, express our culture through a variety of online media, and share it with the world. With faster speeds, our people have increased their usage of social media, file sharing, and usage of entertainment services such as You Tube and Netflix.
Although we are still in our infancy, 7th Gen Technologies has demonstrated benefits to the community and well worth the initial investment. With so much positive change, the Tyendinaga Mohawk Council look forward to the benefits the fibre optics network will bring in the future.
