I had heard that Telus had applied to put up a cel tower in Sunshine Valley, BC.  I would like to know if that is going ahead or not and if so, when?

 

Thanks!

No one here can give you an answer for infrastructure issues. To install a tower it can be complex. If their application is accepted by the town / community, then it comes down to if they have to install new infrastructure / fiber to the town to provide sufficient service for the tower. If the funding is there, it might be months to a year before the tower gets installed. Since Hope is relatively close by I'd suspect there is a better chance of getting a tower.

This area may also be part of the agreement between Telus and the BC government to increase wireless connectivity on BC highways. If so, installations may occur in places where the population size would not normally support a cell site.

Telus used the BC goverment funding a couple years ago to put towers on highway 5 north of Kamloops. Nearly continuous service from Kamloops up to Little Fort BC. It's a microscopic town but it has a cell tower. As do Clearwater, Blue River and Valemount.
