Shentel invests over $350 million in wireless network

EDINBURG, VA, April 12, 2018 (NASDAQ:SHEN) — Today, Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel), a Sprint affiliate, announced that new cell sites located in Martinsville, Bassett, Spencer, Ridgeway, Sandy Level and Axton, VA, have been built to provide and enhance coverage in the Henry County and Martinsville area.

The new cell sites are equipped to provide 4G LTE, which means clearer signals, fewer dropped calls and faster download speeds to offer customers a better experience when calling, texting or streaming video. The tower enhancements will improve coverage along Route 57, Route 58, Rt. 220 Business, and I-77, as well as the Hairfield area and Mountain Valley Road.

These additional sites and upgrades are part of the Shentel-owned Sprint network upgrades that started in 2017 in Virginia and West Virginia, and they will continue throughout 2018. Shentel is investing over $350 million to ensure 100% of their towers, including both new sites and existing sites, are 4G LTE, offering a better wireless experience in previously underserved areas.

“We are committed to providing the best possible customer experience throughout the Henry County and Martinsville area,” said Willy Pirtle, Senior Vice President of Wireless, Shentel. “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.”
