Angle Inlet, MN- In Angle Inlet, Minnesota, the northernmost point in the Continental United States, a new public safety initiative will keep those in the community crucially connected. FirstNet, the wireless network serving the nation’s first responders, will be putting a cell site in an area of Angle Inlet that has been a dead zone in the past. This will allow first responders to better serve the township, and it will decrease response times to any recreational emergencies on the Boundary Waters.

The DNR stated that Teck had the right to this exploration because all of the lands in question are state-owned.
