  • T-Mobile Coming to Haleyville

    Tower crews and technicians were busy Monday, April 22, installing cell phone antennas and radios for T-Mobile on a tower which until now has been sitting empty for several years. The tower is located on Ellenburg Drive, just off Dime Road in NW Haleyville. Two other carriers have licenses to operate from the same tower, but T-Mobile will be the first. One of the other carriers is reported to be AT&T. The crane was brought in from Birmingham on Friday, April 19, but because of the weather and Easter, work did not begin until Monday.

    A proposed merger of T-Mobile and Sprint has been met with opposition. A couple of dozen opponents of the T-Mobile-Sprint deal say the companies have not come close to establishing that the merger of the number three and four wireless carriers is in the public interest and told the FCC again this week not to approve it.

    If you have AT&T cell service, you may want to call the company and encourage them to add the Ellenburg Drive location to their system as soon as possible.
