New (Multiple) Tower Construction, Upgrade (Single) Tower, New Fibre Installation

The Rural Municipality of Yellowhead is proposing the construction of a 36.5m telecommunication tower to provide high-speed internet access to the Keeseekoowenin First Nation. Antennas will be mounted at the top of the tower. The antennas will operate in the 24.1 and 5.7 GHz frequency bands. All of the equipment necessary to operate this facility will be housed in a small equipment cabinet located on site. The Rural Municipality of Yellowhead is also proposing the addition of a three sector antennas (594 mm X 157 mm X 110 mm), in the 5.7 GHz frequency band, mounted at the top of an existing 29.3m tower which is located on the Keeseekoowenin First Nation. The antennas will be installed to improve network access to high-speed internet. In the future, the new tower as well as the existing tower may have other antennas and other radiocommunication equipment added or replaced. The project will also install underground approximately 27 km of fiber optic cabling, for Internet purposes, to all residential homes in the Keeseekoowenin First Nation. The cable will run from Oakburn to the Keeseekoowenin region.
