AKWESASNE – Bell Canada is exploring whether the three districts of Akwesasne should be upgraded as part of its high-speed fiber optic network.

Bell Canada employees are going door-to-door over the next week to Cornwall Island, St. Regis and Snye.

The workers will look at the existing equipment and will also be taking a count of homes and telephone poles, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne said Monday.

The MCA said the workers will be easy to identify because they are wearing blue hats with orange safety vests with the Bell logo.
