What has happened to the cell service in the Whiteshell? We used to have decent service at Nutimuk lake but this year it was terrible. Texts would not go thru, cell calls were almost impossible, tethering was terrible, this was not a problem last year. Something changed with the service. Will this be corrected for next year? For what we pay for cell service and the amount of people that use this great camping, cottage area, we are now getting crappy cell service.

Good morning Jamie - our plan for that area is to implement LTE on the Pinawa site.  Our hope is to have it completed prior to camping season next year.  We should have a better timeline by the start of 2015.

Thanks for your question.
