Island Lakes Cell Coverage

Are there any plans on upgrades for the island lakes area?  There's issues with no service/dropped calls consistently.  Apparently a few years ago MTS tried to put up a cell tower at the Wildwood community club and that was shut down by a petition by the residents.  Did a tower go up in a different location?  Would this tower in Wildwood have improved the cell coverage for the Island Lakes area? Thanks

We are aware of the issues in the Island Lakes/Sage Creek area.  It is interesting you bring up the Wildwood tower - it wouldn't have provided much benefit to your area but it does highlight the fact that getting locations for new cell sites is very challenging.

I can't get into any of the specific details on what has happened to date all I can say is that both us and our network partner are aware of the overall area and need for a new site in that area. 

Thanks
