Verizon may soon have a solution for slow cell service in the Lake Anne area.
The cell phone provider is actively looking for sites of a new cell tower after its facility at Lake Anne Fellowship House was removed in anticipation of the building’s demolition.
“Despite being met by some initial resistance from the county architectural review board, we continue to work on securing new real estate to deploy a replacement site,” Verizon spokesperson Karen Schulz wrote in statement to FFXnow.
Earlier this year, concerns about incompatibility with the area prompted Site Link Wireless to withdraw a plan for six antenna on the roof of Heron House, a 15-story condominium building at the center of Lake Anne Village Center.
Verizon is actively working to secure alternate locations for a new small site in that neighborhood, Schulz said.
So far, surrounding sites service the immediate neighborhood and provide coverage, but some customers have reported congestion and slower speeds.
Schulz noted that Fairfax County’s zoning ordinance does not allow the installation of a temporary site, prompting Verizon to look for other locations for a new site.
While discussions are underway with potential landlords, Verizon has not yet identified a timeline to complete the project going forward.
