I-85 Between Exits 21 & 22 (new Vzw Antennas)

The Verizon antennas on this tower have been upgraded with new panels (added bandwidth for old Alltel customers). A new sector was also added recently to this monopole. A little hard to see it but its the new 4th level in the middle. Also a microwave dish was added near the top recently as well

      I use to work really close to this tower. I use to force my Alltel phone to Verizon when I was in the office. I would get one unuseable bar from the Allte tower behind the Gaston Gazette and full bars off this Verizon tower. I hope they don't shu off the Alltel site near the Gaston Gazette. The site near the Gaston Gazette blasts into the hospital. I even get coverage in the elevator. If Vzw shuts down the site near the Gaston Gazette, service will suffer in the hospital. FYI, Sprint is not on this tower. Maybe Nextel, but definitely not Sprint.
