Northern Telephone invests in service

Northern Telephone is investing an estimated $9.2 million throughout its operating area this year, the company says.

More than half the money will be spent on major projects, with the rest going towards equipment.

The company reported spending $7.8 million in 1989.

Northern Telephone reports that its operating expenses for the year will be $27.3 million, compared to $24.6 million in 1989. The current figure includes a payroll of more than $12.6 million and tax payments of $1.7 million.

Its operating area stretches from Latchford to Timmins and from the Quebec border to the Elk Lake-Gowganda area. Serviced communities include Kapuskasing, Hearst, Kirkland Lake, Englehart, Earlton, New Liskeard, Haileybury and Cobalt.

Originally incorporated as the Temiskaming Telephone Company in 1905, the company is one of the largest independent telephone companies in Ontario.
