Bell Tower Update


This post was the request of Larry Jacobs.

Update on Communications Tower Proposal

I spoke with the Director of Real Estate and Government Relations at Bell Mobility today.  I asked about the status of the potential application for a tower at Leech Lake.  Bell Mobility has no plans to place a tower anywhere in the service area at this time. 
And the company has no plans for the entire area through at least the end of 2020, which is as far forward as the company plans capital expenditures.
We had requested that Bell Mobility should look at a location on Hwy 118 East which would have increased their potential customer base fourfold but would negatively impact many fewer property owners.  No alternate site was researched after our summary of research and property owner comments was received by the Federal Minister.
There is exciting new technology emerging called “Air Gig” which could render towers obsolete.  This is being tested by AT&T and could be the answer for under-serviced areas.  The technology may be commercial in about two years.
Reliable internet service is available at Leech Lake through Xplornet.  With the exception of one ice storm, we have not had a service outage in more than two years after satellite upgrades.

Well we received a letter today January 9, 2020 in regards to the proposed cell tower again. This time it looks like it is near pine lake road close to lake shore drive south. Apparently we are within 210 meters of it and that is why we received letter. Interested in hearing if other received the notice as well.

We also got the same letter, but it's not correct. ours also stated 210 meters, but the GPS coordinates put it at 900 meters from the nearest cottage on the lake (1300 meter from my dock), and it would not be visible from the lake at all. My personal opinion is to allow them without a fight to install it.

I think the "210 Meters" might be from the properly line that contains the cell tower (pine lake hunt camp). just a guess..

I think we are one of the closest cottages and I agree I don't think we will see it from the lake do not fight it at all we are perfectly fine with it and excited to see it moving forward. I think this time Larry your interference paid off for all involved we are still getting the tower and in a location that suits all.

Thanks
Jay Labelle
