Someone asked if the capability to access broadband (high-speed Internet) using 3G HSPA technology is only available through the Bell site at Desbarats.
The answer is no.
All Bell and most Rogers sites along the highway 17 corridor provide HSPA service. Both vendors sell #3 HSPA data hubs and data sticks These maps from the respective vendors and should be considered optimistic. The actual reception in any area is dependent upon a number of factors including but not limited to system availability and capacity, customer's equipment, signal strength, topography and environmental conditions. Each user location has to be considered independently.
Similar technology is coming to the North Sault area in the near future.
