Avola gets wireless service

Telus is now providing newwireless coverage to stretches of highway through Avola as well as residents in the area

KAMLOOPS. – As part of a strategic partnership with the Province, Telus has invested $2.3 million to provide new wireless coverage to stretches of highway through Avola and Little Fort.

The two new wireless sites provide service to about 17 kilometres of Highway 24 from the Interlakes area to Little Fort and about 13 kilometres of Highway 5 through Avola.

The sites are now live, together providing service to more than 30 kilometres of highway as well as homes and businesses in the area.

“It is great news that wireless service is being expanded along those stretches,” said Terry Lake, MLA for Kamloops-North Thompson. “It is important our local motorists feel safe and comfortable while on the road.”

The project is part of the 10-year Connecting British Columbia agreement signed with the Province of B.C. early last year.

 

Under the terms of the contract Telus will connect more than 1,700 kilometres of highway with wireless service.
