DAWSON CREEK, B.C – Rogers Communications hopes to improve wireless connectivity in Rolla and Seven Mile Corner by the end of 2021.

The communications company is installing two small towers near the communities to provide high-speed wireless services and home internet.

Over the next two months, Rogers will be speaking to landowners and Peace River Regional District (PRRD) staff about potential locations for the towers, which need to be close to the communities to ensure fast wireless services.

According to a March 15th letter to the PRRD, Rogers expects to present proposals to the board before the summer and have the towers installed by the end of the year.

The project is a part of the Province’s Connecting B.C. program to improve wireless services in Indigenous, remote and underserved areas.

The PRRD board is scheduled to discuss the letter Thursday.
