New Fibre Installation - Slave Lake

Slave Lake Communications plans to install underground fiber optic cabling, for Internet purposes, to all residential homes in the Slave Lake. The project involves the installation of approximately 77 km of underground fiber optic cable. The fibre will run down from 7 Street NE to Caribou Trail NW close to Sawridge 150G, to the intersection of Highway 88 south towards Highway 2 through Sawridge 150H until the point of presence located at 55.3673, 110.7304.


The cable is to be buried by directional drilling, trenching, or using existing conduits, or a combination of these methods in existing roadway alignments.
