Cellular Service Coming to Middle Arm
The provincial government has announced the final project in the current round of projects to expand wireless coverage in communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
Cell service will be expanded to the town of Middle Arm.
Through a cost-shared agreement with Bell Canada and the town of Middle Arm, the Provincial Government is contributing over $136,000 to provide cellular service in the town, which currently does not have access to wireless services.
This non-repayable contribution represents 25 per cent of total funding for the project, which is estimated to cost approximately $544,000.
Bell will contribute $272,000, with the town funding the remaining portion.
