Shentel NV update

Recommended Posts



Currently, we have completed leasing and zoning on 456 of the 521 sites we planned to have at the end of the year. 328 sites are on the air, and we’ve launched 4G LTEs on 276 sites.


This brings us to 75% of our covered POPs now have LTE. We currently offer LTE in 10 of our 13 market areas. We are still on budget, and expect to complete the project before year-end.

I remember when I visited Gettysburg College, I could not find a place without LTE. It was awesome having 15 Mbps city wide! I just can't wait for LTE to be widespread in bigger cities like it was in this Shentel market.

I know most of 81 from about the Sweet Briar area to 66 in Virginia has LTE coverage and decent speeds (~15 Mbps down). I'm sure based on Sensorly that it extends further north, but I've never been that far so I can't comment. Very few patches based on my mapping now, and getting better each time I drive on 81.


On 66, it's much more patchy and disappears entirely by the Fauquier county line. I've not noticed much if any improvement beyond the initial launch.


On 211 in Virginia it's also very patchy, with LTE entirely gone (and service in general) past Luray moving into the national park. I'd hate to wreck in there! Service doesn't come back till about Sperryville, as I recall. The area is pretty much the middle of nowhere, I can't blame anyone for not servicing it properly.
