Bell Aliant is looking to expand fibre op service in the White Bay region.
The company is proposing to construct a fibre optic pole line between Hampden and Sop’s Arm in White Bay.
The new pole line, 37 km in length, will be located within the highway right-of-way on route 430.
The company is looking to upgrade and expand telecommunications infrastructure for the communities of Pollard’s Point, Sop’s Arm and Jackson’s Arm.
The proposed project is now under consideration through the Environmental Assessment process.
