Communities north of Dauphin won’t be getting any cell coverage, in the near future

Better cell service won’t be coming to areas north of Dauphin anytime soon.

Bell issued their 3rd quarter report last week, and in it, they talked about the billion-dollar capital investment plan. 

According to Dan McKeen, Vice Chair Bell MTS, the Winnipegosis and areas north of Dauphin won’t be getting any better service.

“We don’t have any expansion plans right now for that area. But we are always looking at where we can expand our coverage.”

The 5 year, $1 billion dollar capital investment has improvements in other areas of the Parkland though.

The company has advanced their cell service in areas such as Grandview and Russell.

They announced their new LTE-Advanced service is live across the province and cell service now covers 85% of the province.
