PCL chooses “Communication Towers”

PCL is a group of independent construction companies that carries out work across Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and in Australia. These diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial, and buildings markets are supported by a strategic presence in 32 major centers.


PCL was upgrading one of their customers infrastructure at a remote location in Alberta. They were using a smart hub for their Internet connection that was only giving them very limited speeds.


PCL contacted Rigstar to provide a dedicated 5MB broadband solution to their remote construction site located in rural Alberta. We utlized our existing backhaul to service their location which was located 20km’s from the site. Our Field Technicians deployed one of our portable towers. Once positioned the Technicians calibrated the radio on the portable tower to establish an optimal connection. This allowed PCL to install their server, which replaced their underperforming smart hub. PCL is now able to send and receive files at an accelearted rate. This solution allows PCL to save on their communication costs and provide a higher level of connectivity.
