PURCELLVILLE, Va. JULY 11, 2019 — As Town residents recognize, four commercial carriers providing cellular service to both residents and businesses, have been operating on a temporary tower adjacent to the water tower located on the west side of N. Maple Avenue. The temporary relocation has impacted traditional cellular coverage and cellular service.
The following outline provides an updated schedule for the completion of sandblasting, painting, structural repairs and reinstallation of permanent cellular equipment for the water tower. In addition, the outline provides an expedited schedule for the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) to operate a new commercial cellular tower at the Town’s wastewater plant, which will increase cellular service levels to the southern portion of our town and provide additional bandwidth Town-wide.
