Details from the BC Government Release below:
People travelling from Sooke to Port Renfrew will have cellular service with the completion of seven new cell towers, bringing connectivity for residents, workers and visitors.
The Province invested nearly $5 million in the project led by Rogers Communications, which invested $695,000. The project is bringing cellular service to this 70-kilometre stretch of Highway 14, which did not have wireless network coverage until the project was completed.
New government funding of $75 million was announced in March 2023 to support more highway cellular projects throughout B.C. The Province supports the expansion of highway cellular service in B.C. by contributing to the overall cost of the projects led by service providers.
The Province’s investment is part of StrongerBC, B.C.’s Economic Plan to build back a strong economy with a focus on inclusive growth for all communities.
