    B.C. ‘Highway of Tears’ to Gain Cell Service with Rogers Tower

    Rural coverage really sucks in some of these areas. However this should improve coverage on highway 16.

    You can read more about it here

    Telus already has pretty good service in the Smithers area. Is the news here that the Witset First Nation is now included or that there is a choice of carriers?

    It looks like nobody really covers between Bulkley Canyon to Moricetown, so from what they seem to be saying Rogers will have exclusive coverage in this stretch for now

    Not to be depressing but is that the highway that a lot of people have been missing on?

    ^Yes that is the one. Not really missing but presumed murdered.

    Interesting Roger's isn't even footing the bill for it and I'm not exactly sure what 1-3 towers cost, but I doubt it's $1.2 Million.

    I also don't know what the terrain is like, but one tower on 700-850 Mhz can extend coverage nearly 30 KM...

    Standalone macro sites are typically $2 to 3 million.

    The fact they name it the "Highway of Tears" makes your post not at all depressing

    Most of the communities out there refuse to speak with police so its not at all surprising the number of unsolved cases
    Many bodies found, and multiple people convicted of murders (must be at least 1 still out there as 2 cases after the last conviction)
    Koodo $40 Canada Wide + 8GB
    Public $120 Province Wide + 12GB - $6 Autopay - $9 Loyalty - $45 Refer = $20 per Month
    Freedom $35 ($37-BTS) North America Wide + 8GB + 1GB Roaming
