Public LTE projects consist of installing new fiber optic backbones as well as new LTE wireless networks, allowing residents of several remote communities to have high speed fixed and mobile internet access using the latest technology available on the market. Most of the residents covered by the projects currently do not have access to high-speed technology or LTE service.
LTE Haute-Mauricie project
In addition to offering a new fixed Internet service to residents, LTE equipment will allow the use of LTE cellphones, thus increasing the safety of users traveling in Haute-Mauricie. Many fiber optic cables will be installed along the existing paths while new communication towers will be erected in the regions targeted by the project. The new infrastructures will be sized to accommodate a large number of residents and partners in the community. The project involves the burial of more than 400 km of fiber optic cable in order to guarantee reliable service to the residents of La Tuque, Chambord and Parent. This project will make it possible to avoid service disruptions such as those which have occurred on several occasions in the La Tuque region in recent years.
