Currently many members of the community in Saddle Hill County, Alberta are without internet, which delays their progress and development as a community overall. The Peace Region Internet Society (PRiS) has embraced a two-pronged approach when looking at the future needs of remote communities. Adopting new wireless technologies and utilizing licensed frequencies has enabled PRiS to complete Radio Tower and Microcell Access Point installations in communities where only high cost satellite services were available previously. PRiS will focus on equipping three towers in Saddle Hills County that are directly along the Alberta/British Columbia border. It is expected that installation of the initial equipment in Saddle Hills County will make internet access possible for all community members. A more vibrant, prosperous, connected community will be the outcome of the infrastructure development.
