Upgrade Update: Phase 1

Phase 1 (Core: Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay, and Esquimalt)
P25 700MHz

All of the 12 planned 700MHz transition sites have been installed in the downtown core. Testing of the system with the new dual band radios has begun and will take place over the coming 4 months. Phase 1 is anticipated to go live in March 2018 which will trigger Phase 2 as we move some of the VHF frequencies from the core to strengthen the capacity in the rural areas of the region.
