The LTE Haute-Mauricie project consists 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 project currently do not have access to high-speed technology or LTE service.
Numerous fiber optic cables will be installed along existing paths while new communication towers will be erected in the regions targeted by the project. The new infrastructure will be sized to accommodate a large number of residents and partners in the community. The project involves the burial of more than 500 km of fiber optic cable to ensure reliable high-speed Internet service for residents of La Tuque, Chambord and Parent. This project will prevent service disruptions such as those that have occurred several times in the La Tuque region in recent years.
