Wireless coverage is going to be expanding into St. Mary’s Bay.
The announcement was made yesterday by cabinet minister Sherry Gambin-Walsh.
The cost-shared agreement includes $258,000 from the government to expand the service to the communities in the southwest portion of the Avalon Peninsula, specifically St. Mary’s Bay area, which currently does not have access to cellular coverage.
The funding will enable Bell’s LTE broadband wireless technology throughout the communities.
The money is part of the 2018 budget whereby government issued a call for proposals that would put up $1-million in a new cost-sharing cellular pilot program.
