Latitude Wireless to expand Nunavut cell phone coverage

Latitude Wireless (owned by Northwestel Wireless Inc.) plans to introduce cellular phone service to one community in the territory’s Kitikmeot region and two in the Kivalliq region. About 400 cellphones have been sold in the community of 2,350. Marketing Manager Chris McNutt said: “So we are currently out of cellphones, and we are expecting another allotment of them, probably in about the next week. We have plans to expand Latitude Wireless service to the Nunavut communities of Cambridge Bay, Arviat and Baker Lake before the end of September.”
