Rogers Communications (Rogers) is extending their cellular network to the Pacific Rim along Highway 14 between Sooke and Port Renfrew, and the CREST network is joining them. CREST has entered into a co-location agreement with Rogers to place CREST equipment on a number of new towers.
This means enhanced first responder network coverage along this well-travelled corridor from Shirley to Port Renfrew, good news for Port Renfrew Fire, RCMP and BC Ambulance.
“I want to commend CREST on the system working without interruption in the Juan de Fuca (JdF) Electoral Area during the last storm, when there were extended power outages throughout the region. The CREST system was fully operational. We had no idea there were issues.”
Director Grant, Juan de Fuca (JdF) Electoral Area
The JdF Electoral Area encompasses the southwest coast of Vancouver Island from the community of East Sooke to Port Renfrew.
