About Lorado ... Havent heard of that one . But I know they are putting the one up @ Taplin Hollow to replace the makeshift/temp tower thats up now and they are also putting one up in the park . Those 2 I know for sure .. So I dont see them putting another one @ Lorado if they have one at Taplin Hollow that pretty much comes out over the Town of Man .

I work for AT&T no tower is going up for Lorado. They are replacing the temporary tower though and everywhere you had service in Man, huff creek and just so far up buffalo creek before will be back to normal and all this is being worked on right now and should be finished by around Christmas time. I hope this helps answer any questions.

Hey, since you work for AT&T, put in a word for us. We desperately need one further up Buffalo Creek. We lose our service around Amherstdale/Robinette. Sure would be nice to have service on up past that.

Well it probably won't ever happen. They are only gonna have one permanent tower and the signal with it will only go so far because of all the mountains blocking your phone can't ping off of it. Sorry but that is just the plain fact of the matter with not getting your service any further than you do.

They didn't move the tower someone that works on the Bandmill Strip for Massey tore the tower down with a dozer and now they are having to build a new tower the one that they have up now is temporary and when they get the permanent one back up it will be better and huff creek will get the signal back and probably better than before. It should be back up by around Christmas time.Hope this helped.

They have signed to have the work started on the tower site up Taplin Hollow . The Tower will come out over top of town right around Elliotts Custom graphics . Service should be better than before and looks decent all the way to County line on Huff Creek . They should start within the next few weeks but the only hold up will be the power situation . And they are working on that now . Hope this helps for you Huff Creekers , Buffalo creek should get better reception as well but probably not anything past Robinette like before

Well, it's now December and we still don't have service on Huff Creek. Is there any further information as to when we will get our cellular service back? When you call Wireless 101 in Logan, they seem to have no information. They made a serious mistake when the tower was removed from its old site.

i was told by att that they could put towers up on huff creek or buffalo creek if someone would be willing to lease them the land to do so.

I'm sure someone would lease them land to do so, but in the meantime, does anyone know when this permanent tower will be finally up and running? It has been entirely too long without service. This has made a huge impact on service. Looks to me like AT&T would be on the ball with this project because they will simply lose business. People are not going to waste their money on phone service when proper access cannot be provided. I live in Huff Creek and the only way I can use the phone now is in my work travel to Oceana and to Logan. The town of Man should also be on the ball to get this completed because you have very weak service even in downtown.

Welcome to the world of Bend Over and Hold On. We keep getting screwed by big business and there is nothing we can do (seems like) but bitch to one another. You call ATT the dont give a damn, all of their phones in the citys work. And you wonder why people get mad and take it out on other people. Same in other things not just Cell Towers. I hate everything, gotta go take a chill pill before something bad happens.LOL

what about niebert and 3 mile curve theres no signal there now, I heard Verizon finally has their towers and their like 100% better, they pick up almost anywhere.Plus what were paying out the ASS for AT&T u can get 3 cells phones for only $99.00.Thats pick your own phones lots and lots of minutesfree weekends unlimited to each cell, sounds like to me AT&T might just have their own compitition..........
