Call waiting

Possible improvements to cellular coverage in the highway corridors of the regional district were discussed at the RDKB level.

Call waiting is in place for those hoping for improvements to cell phone service in the region.

At the June 20 Regional District of Kootenay Boundary board of directors meeting chair Larry Gray talked about possible improvements to cellular coverage in the highway corridors of the regional district.

During a phone call to discuss other matters, Gray had the opportunity to ask Doug Anastos, of Telus Communications, about the possible improvements to cellular coverage in the Highway 3 and 3B

corridors, which include Rossland.

Gray said Telus was non-committal but was looking to have further answers in the coming weeks, and if there was news that he would contact the regional district with the news.

Anastos reiterated that Telus has 1,700 kilometres of highway corridor in B.C. to cover by the end of 2016, many of which are in the northern part of the province.

“And there is a stronger economic development case in Northern B.C.,” Gray said in a report to the board.
