Tallcree First Nation Pure Fibre Network Project

Telus proposes to construct a new Pure Fibre network in Tallcree First Nation, Alberta. This new proposed network is planned to connect to existing infrastructure, and is part of a larger connectivity project spanning Highway 88 from Fort Vermillion to Red Earth, Alberta. Wood utility poles will be used, and Telus' conduit where available. Proposed acitivties would include directional drilling under an unamed tributary creek to the Wabasca River to install the Pure Fibre connection.
