TNC, Tancook’s newest Internet provider, caused quite a stir a week or so ago when the ferry arrived with their fibreglass tower sections overhanging the back of the ferry.
A recent check of the tower site on Reef Road found the 120 foot tower assembled and bedrock exposed at the tower location and three guy wire anchor points.
It will be exciting to see how TNC stands up the tower and anchors it to the bedrock. Even more exciting will be the day when the tower is ready and island customers are connected.
Here are a couple of photos of the tower. The first is taken from the top end and shows the racking for attaching the Internet receiving microwave dish and transmitting panels. The second photo shows the length of the tower sitting on its temporary support blocking.
