I had LTE (AT&T), two bars by the boat launch. Can't remember ever having LTE service up there before.

Still don’t think they remembered to plug in the Verizon tower yet. Will be Checking this weekend.

That’s not the result of the new tower. It’s still not working after 1.5 years!

So, according to Verizon their coverage of the area has greatly increased in the last two years. Appears to be a lot more red on the map of the area.

Thats what they figured. But have seen no sign of such signal. Still convinced they forgot to plug the thing in. I plan to stop into the county office to check in June to see if they know whats up.

See, that’s slightly odd because up until 2016, I wasn’t able to get any “reliable” signal in the 140s. 1 to 2 bars if I was lucky, if it’s 3 to 4 now that seems like a significant increase. I think that’s where we’re staying in July.

I drive by where the tower is a few times a year. Not a single bar!

I have actually heard before when you are too close to a tower it actually doesn't help. That was a while ago, so perhaps it no longer applies to LTE radios.

The signal was good enough to watch live tv on my spectrum cable app so something was working better! It really makes no difference to me weather I get cell service or not I am there to enjoy the outdoors.

I also find it hard to believe that they forgot to plug a cell tower in.
