Bell Aliant has completed the construction of a new communications tower near Rigolet.
Last spring, a massive ice-buildup caused Bell Aliant’s communications tower to collapse.
A temporary tower was erected until the weather conditions would allow for a new tower to be constructed.
Wayne Sheppard is Bell Aliants Regional Manager for Labrador and the Avalon Peninsula.
He says the new tower has been constructed and is ready to go.
However, the tower will not be in operation until about two-three weeks.
Sheppard says that everything will then be transferred from the temporary tower to the new, permanent one.
In other Bell Aliant news, most of the internet was down in the community of Nain.
OKâlaKatigêt Radio contacted Bell Aliant’s high speed technician agent.
The agent said because of the amount of reports from Nain, Bell Aliant has tagged Nain’s internet service as down.
Technicians are now working on the situation and should have the problems fixed by 5pm local time.
The agent adds that this problem may be resolved before then.
She asks everyone to hang tight while the problem is located.
