New AT&T Cell Tower Operating in Cameron

Posted: Updated:
CAMERON, W.Va. -

A new cell phone tower has gone live in the town of Cameron, connecting residents to the rest of the world via AT&T cellular service.

In addition to bringing cell service to the area, the tower will provide reliable radio communication for the Sheriff's department, 9-11, volunteer fire departments, and Cameron's municipal law enforcement.

AT&T retail sales consultant, Ashleigh Thress, says the project was a collaboration of the Marshall County Commission, Consol Energy, who donated the land for the tower, and AT&T.

Ground was broken for the 350 foot tall tower in April, after the Marshall County Commission received a grant from the West Virginia Wireless Tower Access Assistance Fund.

"AT&T can offer all of the customers the ability to talk, text and surf the web, all while accessing your favorite apps on your smart phone," Ashleigh says.
