High Speed Internet and Cell Phone Services for Barriere Lakes area
On June 29, 2011, following a three-year negotiated request for proposals (NRFP) process, the Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government posted a Notice of Intent to award a 10-year strategic telecommunications services contract worth approximately $100 million per year to TELUS. This contract will provide telecommunications and strategic services to government and its broader public sector partners, while expanding high-speed Internet connections for families and businesses in rural and remote B.C. and expanding cellular coverage along highways across the province. Please join our petition to secure affordable high speed internet and cell phone services for the rural area from Barriere Lakes Road Summit (by landfill) east to the Barriere Lakes area.
