The nearest tower to Big Whiteshell Lake (south shore) is at White Lake. Both cdma and 4G phone will not work. I'm wondering if MTS will be expanding, adding new towers in the Big Whiteshell area. If there is an emergency or accident it would be nice to have service. Thanks.

Hi Shelley,

We don't have any plans to add new towers to the area.  You are right on the fringe of service from the tower at Jessica Lake (also near White Lake).  When the cottage season starts up and more people are in the area I will have our optimization team see if there are any adjustments on the existing tower that can be made to improve the reach to that location.

Thanks for your question.
