Shentel Builds Local Towers in Nicholas County to Provide 4G LTE Network

Shentel invests over $350 million in wireless network

EDINBURG, VA, December 14, 2017 (NASDAQ:SHEN) —Today, Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel), a Sprint affiliate, announced that new cell sites located in Richwood, Nettie, Summersville, Fenwick and Canvas, WV, have been built to provide and enhance coverage in the Nicholas County area.

The new cell sites are equipped to provide 4G LTE, which means clearer and fewer dropped calls and faster download speeds to offer customers a better experience when calling, texting or streaming video. The tower additions will provide continuous coverage between the towns of Richwood and Summersville. Coverage will also be enhanced along Routes 20, 39 and 41, bringing new coverage to the communities of Nettie, Persinger and Canvas.

These additional sites and upgrades are part of the Shentel-owned Sprint network upgrades that have occurred throughout 2017 in Virginia and West Virginia. Shentel has invested over $350 million to ensure 100% of their towers are 4G LTE, offering better coverage to customers in previously underserved areas.

“We are committed to providing the best possible customer experience throughout the Nicholas County area. With Sprint’s exceptional value on unlimited plans and our outstanding local customer service, we are fast becoming the choice for wireless in the area,” said Willy Pirtle, Senior Vice President of Wireless, Shentel.
