Notices, Workshops & Rides: Alternatives to cell towers
"....When telecoms control the network, federal policy permits them to install 4G and 5G transmitters, coined “small cells,” on existing structures like telephone poles near homes without public knowledge or consent.” .... Is this what we want here on Cortes?

Here is a very interesting article regarding fibre-optic options that Salt Spring Island is working on, particularly for emergency services: "Let’s Connect Salt Spring’s approach to improving emergency services is to connect hospitals, fire and police, search and rescue, as well as all emergency transmission sites, with wired fibre."

Is this something we could achieve on Cortes, or is the only option another cell tower (or two, or three?)
