New (Multiple) Tower Construction, Upgrade (Single) Tower, New Fibre Installation

New (Multiple) Tower Construction:

Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation is proposing the construction of 2 telecommunication towers to provide high-speed internet access to the Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation. The towers will be 50 m tall. Antennas will be mounted at the top of these towers. These antennas will operate in the 5.8 and 3.65 GHz frequency bands. All of the equipment necessary to operate this facility will be housed in a small equipment cabinet located on site. These towers may undergo future modifications or the addition/replacement of antennas.

Upgrade (Single) Tower: 

Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation is proposing the addition of 4 [52 x 65 x 11 cm] antennas, in the 5.8 GHz frequency band, mounted at the top of an existing 33 m tower which is located on Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation. The antennas will be installed to improve network access to high-speed internet. In the future, the existing tower may have other antennas and other radiocommunication equipment added or replaced.

New Fibre Installation:

Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation plans to install underground fiber optic cabling, for Internet purposes, to all residential homes in the Beardy's and Okemasis Cree Nation. The project involves the installation of approximately 9 km of underground fiber optic cable from the Shaw nearest splice point (Lat: 52°49'28.38"N Long: -106°11'43.19"W) to the Justice Building main hub site.

The cable is to be buried by directional drilling, trenching.
