Snow Lake got a boost in data services this week as MTS turned up its 4GHSPA wireless network in the area. Their President Kelvin Shepherd says the biggest thing it means for people is the latest smartphones like an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy will work on this new technology. He says up until now they’ve had access to older smartphones like the Blackberry but the 4GHSPA will support the latest and greatest.
Shepherd was in Snow Lake this week to officially launch the improved service.
Mayor Clarence Fisher says Snow Lake is a growing community with many people in the area already having smartphones and those who relocate to their community will have access to the latest wireless services which only encourages further economic growth.
