The company’s $26 million investment will bring greater coverage and more choice and competition to mobile customers in the northern part of the province. “We are pleased to report that we are on track to go live in Miramichi in the coming months,” confirmed Eastlink CTO Steve Irvine.

“We have the necessary approvals and permits in place and have begun preparing several sites between Shediac and Miramichi with access roads, tree trimming and the installation of poles, antennae systems and supportive equipment.”

“We were very excited to hear of Eastlink’s mobile expansion investment plans back in the fall,” said Miramichi Mayor Adam Lordon. “We’re thrilled with the progress being made. Strong access to mobile services in communities like ours is so important; it positions us as a place where our people are motivated to stay and where new people feel encouraged to settle because they have the tools they need to live, work, learn and play.”

Eastlink has invested more than $270M since its launch in 2013 to grow its mobile service into more Canadian communities including Saint John, Fredericton, Shediac and Sussex in New Brunswick.
