Bell continues it build out in the North Sault area. They recently announced public consults for two sites in the SSM area. One they referenced as Pine St - Northern Avenue area near Sault College in the city; it will be a 34 metre monopole. The other they referenced as GNR - 6th Line. It will be located to the west of the former Greenbelt Bingo Hall site on Hwy 17 and will be a 70 metre lattice tri-pole similar to those under construction at Heyden (Beaumont) and Goulais (Buttermilk).
There was no in-service date provided but it normally takes 6-9 months after the public consult for construction to start. Therefore I suspect we are looking at the 2013 work plan output.
Like other new Bell sites they will be HSPA+ only (no CDMA). The new GNR - 6th Line site will also help fill some of the broadband service gaps in the area by making data hub technology available.
