After years of lobbying from local residents and work from the Heffley Lake Community Association, TELUS has completed installation of technology to increase service along Heffley Louis Creek Road from Heffley Creek to Sun Peaks.
A spokesperson for the company said nine small cell sites were installed on top of hydro poles in the area to add and enhance coverage along the road and surrounding areas like Whitecroft. Heffley Lake residents have also reported improved cell service.
“This enhanced services means that residents and visitors have more reliable connectivity when they are driving along the road into Sun Peaks,” said the spokesperson. “As well as in their community, which is not only a benefit for customers who want to stay seamlessly connected to their friends and family or work, and it also enhances the safety of travel.”
