Verizon to expand coverage through cell tower in Fairview


FAIRVIEW –– Verizon customers in the Fairview and surrounding areas will receive better coverage following the construction of a 254-foot cell tower.

The self-supporting lattice telecommunications tower will be located along the east side of Knepp Road, north of Kneeland Road in Comins Township.

Public Relations Manager Steve Van Dinter said the tower is being built to compensate for the volume of customers in the area.

“Wireless devices, and in particular smartphones, continue to grow in usage,” he said. “This cell site is necessary to add capacity to the network to ensure Verizon continues to provide the high-quality network experience our customers expect.”

Dinter said the process is still in the very early stages, but the tower is expected to be completed in approximately one year. The tower is expected to enhance coverage in the nearby area.

“Verizon invests billions of dollars each year to build out and enhance its network to meet the growing needs of its customers,” Dinter said. “This is an example of one of those network enhancements which will bring improved connectivity, additional capacity and the latest in network technologies.”

Dinter said the cell site has been a product of years of planning and was recently announced through public notices.

The company is requesting public comment with concerns or opinions regarding the tower and any historical properties or potential environmental effects.
