Provincial Government & Bell to Expand Cellular Service
Funding has been approved for the call for proposals to support a project between Bell Canada and 11 communities to establish or enhance cellular service.
This funding enables the advanced deployment of Bell’s LTE broadband wireless technology in the communities of Bay de Verde, Burin, Burlington, Conche, Cow Head, Cox’s Cove, Forteau, Hampden, McIvers, Trout River and Winterton.
The communities will work with Bell to finalize agreements.
The Provincial Government is contributing over $875,000 in this phase, with additional investments of $2,159,588 from Bell and $465,826 from the community partners.
