The construction of seven towers to expand cellular service on a 70-kilometre stretch of Highway 14 from Sooke to Port Renfrew has been pushed back to 2022.

A spokesperson for Rogers Communications, the project’s contractor, said crews are still building the towers.

“We remain dedicated to the completion of this important project as we address the global equipment and steel shortage, complexities of obtaining building permits as well as the challenging terrain in the area, and are on track to have coverage in service in 2022,” he said in an email to Black Press Media.

“I have property in Jordan River that I’m currently building a house on,” Mike Morrison said in an email.

“I was hoping the cell service would be available by now so it would be easier to communicate and do research for the build while I’m out there. There are a lot of things to organize and deal with when building a house.”

 

FFS. Entitled much?

He’s a guy building a house and had hoped he’d have cell service by now, as per the province’s announcement.

Anyways, it’s funny as I was looking up the tower permitting last night and thought holy smokes, still in permitting? Granted one of the towers is planned to stand 57 meters tall. That’s almost Orchard House tall.

You can access US signals from out that way. So you can, theoretically, buy a US SIM card and a cheap plan, and you’re good to go.

Every time I drive down Dallas road my phone switches over to a US carrier, when I get a little further away I get a "Welcome to Canada" text message.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
