Bell Cell Sites in North Sault Status as of 21 Sep 12

Indications are the construction of the actual towers and cell hardware for the Bell sites in North Sault at Heyden (Beaumont) and Goulais (Buttermilk) is now complete. The sites now need to be integrated into the network. 

One source indicated that Bell is in the process of finalizing the backhaul and network requirements and should have the sites operational within a week or two.

Another source indicated that Bell will be activating new sites in Thunder Bay in addition to the North Sault sites during the first week of Oct 2012. 


  1. Any information on further site developments north of the Soo (Batchewana, etc...)? Thanks for all the updates.

    1. I don’t have any confirmed information about new Bell sites north of Goulais.

      I have heard that Bell and Algoma Power Inc (API) had talks about running power to various locations along the Hwy 17corridor but I don’t have any details about locations or timelines.
