SABRI is currently working on a proposal for a project to increase the cell coverage in the area from Big Brook to Goose Cove. The map shows the current coverage compared to the expected additional coverage. The proposal will see SABRI partnering with Bell for a project with a total cost of $1,800,000 with a 10 year average operating cost of approximately $100,000 per year (covered by Bell). The proponent cost is 38.89% – $700,000.
We are looking to the public to partner with SABRI for a $200,000 contribution. The Public being all stakeholders (individuals and businesses) from Big Brook to Goose Cove who feel that additional cell coverage would be a benefit to them. SABRI will then continue to source the additional funds.
If you would like to make a pledge you can do so by
• Calling our office at 454-3484.
• Contacting a Town office (except the St. Anthony town office) or Local Service District within the SABRI Region.
• Printing a pledge sheet and dropping it off to the office or mailing it to
P.O. Box 69
St. Anthony, NL
• Or sending an email to the SABRI Office through our contact us page
We will need your name, phone number and pledge amount. No money will be collected until such time that we know the project will go ahead. If we miss your call just leave your information on our answering machine. No information will be shared from individual pledges. Only totals will be shared with the public.
This Extra Coverage is not only beneficial to the communities in the region that is currently without coverage but is beneficial to all who use a cell phone in this region. There will be added coverage for:
• Berry Pickers
• Cabin Owners
• Business owners
• Our Kids…..and the list goes on
Please share this information with anyone that you think would be benefit by this increase in cell coverage, including friends and family from away that come to visit, or even to those that are away that like to be able to reach you but currently can’t. All help is appreciated.
Thank you, in advance, for helping with this project!
