I havent been up there to see the trucks to know for sure. But in So Chas there is a company called Windstream that is placing fiber optic cable to alot of the cell towers that provide service to Verizon Wireless. They are not getting right of way for aerial attachments or having any of this work done correctly.

Ntelos and AT&T are building on the tower. Ntelos already has their equipment up and running on generator power right now until AEP gets their line up soon. The AT&T build is suppose to be completed by the end of Spring.

Lumos has their fiber optic cable installed all the way up to Mary Ingles Elementary. I'm not sure whether that was the most recent utility work that had been going on up there though. It's most likely their fiber going up to the new tower and they just did an expansion all the way up to the school too.

There's also a few new power/phone poles that are 5 ft. taller and were installed (prob. b/c of the added Lumos fiber) starting from Spring Fork all the way up to around the school as well. The lines still have yet to be transferred and old poles removed.

Sprint customers are now also enjoying service off the new tower as well as Ntelos has an agreement with them as they work off the same network.

That will be great. Maybe I should switch phones or guess I could just wait. I know some places, it's feel so strange to have full "towers" on your phone and just talk away and others all you get is the "search" item. haha
Can't wait.

There's most likely going to be another tower build starting this year that will take place on up the creek around Tad that should cover a majority of all the rest of the creek. I'm not sure who's building on it yet, but most likely Ntelos and AT&T there too.

They do have a site picked and ready for a second build up that way, but VZW, AT&T, or nTelos has not agreed to locate and install their equipment as of yet.

AT&T cell service up Campbless Creek? The tower has been there 2 years and still no service from AT&T. I just think AT&T is worthless.
