Tbaytel will be erect a new cell tower in downtown Fort Frances this summer.
Summit Telecom Services, on behalf of Tbaytel, has sent notice to the town that the public consultation process, as required by Industry Canada, has been completed for a 20-metre high tower to be located behind the Legion.

No questions or concerns were submitted by the public prior to May 26.
The tower, which will be operational by late summer or early fall, will off-load wireless traffic from Tbaytel’s existing sites in Fort Frances, which will increase capacity and thus improve its wireless services here.
The tower also will have an equipment cabinet at the base with concrete bollards.
