Province boosts funding to support highway cell coverage projects

The B.C. government is paying $75 million to improve cell service while driving on the province’s highways.

Provincial officials said the new funding will expand cellular to at least another 550 kilometres of highway by 2027.

This builds on a previous investment of $15 million dollars.

No specifics were given on what new projects may be included.

More information regarding the program and funding eligibility will be available later in 2023.
