New monopole tower

A new monopole tower which will bring improved broadband and cell phone service to the West Mathews community went up last week at the Mathews Volunteer Fire Department’s Station 2 on East River Road at Bohannon. Material arrived last Thursday and was stacked by the end of the day, with work done by Muller Construction Company, led by project manager Rick Moore. RFPs will now go out to cell phone carriers, according to Judy Rowe of the Mathews County Broadband Advisory Board. RFPs for fixed wireless providers are awaiting guidelines from 2024 VATI grant application process to be able to partner with a company, she said. Inset: A view from the top of the tower.
