Bell Canada is now upgrading the microwave and cell tower on the Manitou Road.
The exiting tower will be replaced by a new tower that is roughly 16 feet taller than the exiting tower and will carry all the new cell technologies included expanded frequencies and increased capacity on weekends for all of us weekend warriors. Upgrades to the wireline technologies is unclear, but apparently some areas are receiving digital access via the phone lines.
The new tower will be up and running by December local contractors commented to Manitou Road residents. Expect significant contractor traffic on the main Poplar Bay road and the Manitou Road seven days a week. Today, there are eight foot cut logs available for anyone. Approach the contractors on site as soon as possible.
