Cell service is an issue in the Tri-Counties.

Nearly 1,400 people responded to a survey from the Western Regional Enterprise Network.

Over 200 respondents reported issues in Barrington, over 100 had problems on Highway 103.

Sixty-four percent found that cell issues took place during business hours.

CEO of the Western REN Angelique LeBlanc says there are also dropped calls and slow data speed.

“The inability to make or receive calls, poor internet service, poor audio, there was no shortage of issues,” said LeBlanc.

LeBlanc says the survey helped map out problematic areas.

The findings have been shared with municipal partners, and a provincial survey is coming up.
