Point Abino Lighthouse gets capped with WiFi transmitter

Town of Fort Erie and Last Mile Wireless Internet are collaborating to equip the Point Abino Lighthouse with high-tech upgrades:

– A transmitter to bring Internet service to shoreline residents; (the device is barely visible, so won’t affect the Point Abino Lighthouse’s aesthetics.)

– A webcam in the basement so the Town of Fort Erie can monitor sump pump

– Internet phone inside the Point Abino Lighthouse for emergencies

This 2-year pilot project with be at no cost to the Town of Fort Erie.
