A 'visual simulation' by Xplornet Communications shows what the tower will look like on Wellington Road 7.

Xplornet Communications wants to build a new telecommunications tower just south of Alma at 6949 Wellington Road 7. 

The company says the quality and availability of high speed internet and home phone coverage currently does not meet "Xplornet standards nor the needs of this community."

"This proposal entails bringing affordable, robust high speed internet and home phone services to Alma, and the surrounding community," Xplornet said the project description package

According to a report to Centre Wellington council, no comments or objections to the tower were received within a 30 day notice period. 

Centre Wellington council is expected to sign off on the project at Monday's meeting. Final approval of the tower is up to the federal government.
