Overall Status: A large portion of Amherst County has our wireless services available. These areas include the northern part of the county, Lowesville, Turkey Mountain, Gladstone, Tobacco Mountain, and the entire western portion of the Larkin Mountain region.
Current Status: We have approvals for LTE deployment from The National Quiet Zone and Grandfathered Earth Stations for all SCS Amherst tower sites. We are waiting on our final FCC paperwork. Amherst County has approved partnering to let SCS lease and provision on five additional County towers. This will provide service to thousands more citizens in 2018-2019. The leases should be completed by September, and SCS has applied for LTE services for the new county towers.
Future Plans: We will begin the transition of the current towers to LTE in 2018 as soon as the FCC sends final approval notifications.
