The Ottawa Regional Municipality is moving forward with a $2.5-billion plan to install a new mobile phone pilot in the city.
The mobile phone will allow the municipality to expand its network and give people a better experience with the Internet, said Coun.
Ottawa will begin deploying the pilot on its first day of operation this summer.
It will cover more than 300,000 households and cover some of the most remote areas of the city, including the Rideau Canal.
Residents in remote areas will have access to a mobile phone that will enable them to send and receive messages and make calls.
They can also call 911 to report a problem.
It’s a new concept, but a good one for Ottawa.
With the mobile phone, people can communicate directly with others and be able to reach out to people in their community.
“When we talk about mobility and the Internet in Ottawa, it’s really about the mobile.
It’s about connecting people to the Internet,” said Tanneman.
“People will be able connect to the mobile.”
The first phase of the pilot will see about 200 people get their first cell phone.
Tanneman said that it will take a few months to get a handle on the pilot.
He said the municipality is looking to get people to participate in the pilot, but the community will have to wait and see.
