4G LTE wireless coverage expands

Additional transmission towers allows Appalachian Wireless to grow its 4G LTE service, which provides faster mobile downloads.

“Appalachian Wireless is continuing to expand its 4G LTE coverage footprint, and this is especially true in Owsley and Jackson counties,” says Ashley Litteral, marketing manager of Appalachian Wireless.

In March, the company added four towers — Annville, Mummie, Gray Hawk and McKee — to serve Jackson and Owsley counties.

“You’ll know if your device is using 4G LTE by seeing either “4G” or “LTE” next to your signal strength indicator,” he says.

Customers should expect continued expansion of 4G LTE service. A new tower in the Waneta area will be ready by fall.
