Project Partners: FedNor, NOHFC, NorthernTel
In July of 2003, FedNor and NOHFC signed contracts with NEOnet to support the $8.9M project. The project vendor, NorthernTel, made the remaining investment. The cellular expansion project established 17 new cellular towers providing service to over 540 km of the King’s Highways from Constance Lake to the Québec Border, and from Dirftwood down to the watershed. This project improves safety, increases tourism and economic development opportunities, and enhances the quality of life for northerners. It also provides some of the most complete cellular coverage in North America, especially given the rural and remote nature of this area.
