The NOMADE mobile network will cover 98% of the territory of the Gaspésie and Bas-Saint-Laurent regions, as well as the road network and all the municipalities of the Côte-Nord (including the roads between Baie-Comeau and Fermont, Sept-Îles and Kegaska, Schefferville and Anticosti). The coverage will also extend to Gloucester, Madawaska, Northumberland, Restigouche and Victoria counties in New Brunswick, and will gradually be expanded to other provinces and territories in Canada.



Individuals, business and utilities thus have access to a truly digital technology that replaces cell service when it is not available, at very affordable rates. With the arrival of NOMADE, travel on roads in remote areas will soon be safer. This will be the case on Route 389 in Quebec, linking Baie-Comeau and Fermont over a distance of 570 km, where there are no public communication systems with up-to-date technology. Coverage will also improve safety on Route 138, which stretches from Quebec City to Kegaska over a trajectory regarded as very dangerous, where cellular network coverage is subject to multiple interruptions.

The advent of NOMADE mobile network coverage is also applauded on Anticosti Island, where it will enable vacationers, residents, utilities and businesses to communicate within the island’s 222-kilometre-long territory and with the rest of the world. The same is true in central New Brunswick, where cell coverage is poor despite considerable development of the rich natural resources.

For decades, a lack of effective means of communication has hindered the performance of industries and public services in remote regions and in communities without cellular service as well as compromising the safety of their staff and residents. Thanks to the NOMADE mobile network, that era is over!
