Re: [BC] Wynndel / Creston BC Creston has been on a new fiber backhaul from Cranbrook now for almost a year. The microwave setup on mount baker is now only used for TV (although this will change when we go all digital).
If you look around Creston there has been a ton of fiber/coax run on poles outside of the town to various communities. So if you see it on the pole, the sub contractors are finished then its just a wait for Shaw. I have now learned 10 months of our delay on my road was caused by waiting for the Utility company(Fortis) to complete power pole maintenance. I see they replaced a good 20 poles along the road. Once they finished the overheard cabling was moved to the new poles and i would say within a month a shaw boom truck was out installing splitters/amps along the road.
So i think it will just be a matter of where you are on the list of community upgrades. I noticed a large amount of new cable out in Canyon/Lister area as well, so lets hope wynndel is farther up the list!
