Summerville needs more info before considering 5G cell service

Dorchester County News

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCBD) – The Town of Summerville wants to work on better cell phone service, but first, they need more answers.

During their meeting Thursday night, town council was expected to review and establish policies for cell companies to install small wireless facilities.

But, the first reading of the ordinance to establish the standards for the placement of those facilities was postponed. The Mayor and Council members want to figure out how to control the placement of the required 5G transmitters.

We are told, right now, cell phone companies are working to install technology to deliver 5G service to the area.

No word on when this matter will be taken up again.
