Words can not express how important cell service would be to my family. We only have water only access and no available forms of communication. My grandparents are both 92, and my parents are both 65 so health issues are a constant concern. A new tower has been long anticipated. It is not a question if the tower would be needed. It is simply a question when it will be needed. Having emergency cellular communications from more isolated areas will save lives. That is priceless……. I did have 2 questions if anyone might know the answers: Where is the closest tower to Restoule currently located? What would the coverage of the new tower be? I have looked over maps etc etc but not sure how up to date they are.
Hi R, You should buy a cell phone booster in the meantime. There are areas all around Restoule where the booster will give your cell phone access to the nearest tower, linking you to the cell network. You get what you pay for, but 50 to 100 bucks should get you connected.
Dear R..how right you are..for all of us this is a safety issue….we are hoping that the tower that is installed will cover the north shore but who really knows…again hoping it get down to us in the far end of the lake on north shore…this is a life line for us…I think that Bell should have installed a phone at Porters landing for everyone in an emergency….we did have analog service and they cut it out….Porters Landing is now a government dock
Thanks Dave for the update but that really is another stab in the back from Mother Bell……was there a specific reason they gave this time for the delay? This has been so upsetting for 4 years now……regrettfully my PC crashed last year and I lost all the historical emails of excuses John Wood provided as the previous public relations person assigned to this project. I will surely email and voice my concerns once again. I suggest everyone does.
I will be glad to give you some insight on this project. This tower is programmed to be built in 2013 and will serve to cover the areas that do not have cellular and internet coverage or to enhance the coverage in designated areas.
There will be a public notification as soon as the photo simulations are completed which will be in June or July 2012.
I hope this info will be fruitfull to your article.
So what is everyone going to say when they see a big ugly tower with antennae and red obstruction lights to light up the night sky protruding upwards along the beautiful shores of Lake Restoule. Some of the towers, depending on the transmission distance can exceed three hundred feet. That is why NAV CANADA is involved because they create a hazard to air navigation. Be careful what you wish for….. food for thought.
we live a few miles from Hamilton Municipal airport which has night cargo flights with FedEx and Puralator……and Westjet passenger planes and Penisula and hangers with corporate jets for the owners of Tim Hortons chain…… and the Warplane Heritage museum that houses and flys the B-52 bomber etc…….we have a minimum of four towers that I know of in this small town that borders on Hamilton…
Schedule what is the need for a schedule…get the crew..grab the tower…drive to the site..put it up…funny how they go up like dandeliions in Southern ontario…$ talks and this is all about $
one tower is the minimum this community needs…
Thanks… would be nice for safety sake if it was this year… with half of the lake not having cell service, and none on the highways… cell service is a huge factor to keep people safe these days… What use is a helicoptor pad for air ambulance if you can’t call 9-1-1
