Expands LTE Coverage in Rural Canada
LOWELL, Mass. — Feb. 27, 2019 — NetNumber announced today that Ambra Solutions, a telecom engineering turnkey provider, has selected the NetNumber ALL-G Private LTE solution to be operated by Ecotel, a Canadian MNO. As Ecotel raises more than a dozen new towers across multiple under-served regions in Canada, the NetNumber solution will provide coverage across rural areas as part of the government’s Connect to Innovate program. The Connect to Innovate program aims to invest $500 million by 2021, to bring high-speed Internet to 300 rural and remote communities in Canada.
“In many parts of rural Canada, telecom coverage is limited or non-existent which makes it difficult for populations in these areas to participate in the economy and use digital tools and services like tele-health and tele-learning,” said Eric L’Heureux, chief executive officer of Ambra and Ecotel. “We are proud to play a role in building the infrastructure to connect citizens with one another and with important institutions like schools and health care. The NetNumber ALL-G Private LTE solution provides a modular footprint that enables us to add new capabilities as we scale this project.”
