Telus Service on Highway 16 Between Prince Rupert and Terrace Going Live

TELUS has announced new wireless coverage for over 14 kilometres of Highway 16 between Prince Rupert and Terrace is starting to go live, in particular the site in the North Coast region, 60 kilometres east of Prince Rupert.

The expansion is part of a $450,000 investment in part with the Province of British Columbia, part of the 10-year Connecting BC agreements signed back in 2011. The agreement will see Telus bring service to over 1,700 kilometres of unconnected highways with service.

The expanded service will allows travellers increased access to wireless service, especially for 911 emergency calls.

    Sweet! That’s a long empty stretch of road. 60 km from Rupert will allow guys coming off the Work Channel to call home before they hit the highway.
