The Thunder Bay court house now has a pay phone.

Following Wednesday's CBC News report on the lack of pay phones in the building, Tbaytel installed a phone on the main floor.

The company had previously halted the installation because it was concerned the building's thin granite walls wouldn't support the units, the company's manager of corporate brand communications, Katie Crowe, told CBC News.

Court house visitors told CBC News they were frustrated by the lack of pay phones in the building.

Lawyer Mason Millar said not everyone has a cell phone — and people have important decisions to make when they're at court.
