Telephone line relief for Pontiac

PONTIAC May 22, 2018
After years of land line outages throughout the Pontiac, it looks like the region will finally get the redundant phone lines that have been sorely needed.
Bell announced that it will be spending more than $2 million to improve its telecommunications network in the region.
The phone line is expected to be up and running by Sept. 2018.
The telecommunications giant will build an additional link between the telephone exchanges in Chapeau and Pembroke.
The current phone line for the region runs alongside Hwy. 148.
The issue of landlines suddenly going silent is a problem that is all too familiar for Pontiac residents.
It means that people can’t even call emergency services from their land lines.
