Cell Phone Service in Haddam

From Town of Haddam

A major wireless carrier has expressed interest in upgrading cell phone service along Saybrook Road. Homeland Towers leases a number of potential cell phone tower sites throughout Haddam. Two of these sites are owned by the town and the others are privately owned. Raymond Vergati, the Regional Manager for this area from Homeland Towers, called First Selectman Bob McGarry to let him know that Homeland is currently working with a carrier for a site to be located in the Jail Hill area and in Tylerville.

“This is great news that is long overdue,” McGarry said. “As much as we all count on our cell phones these days, having a dead zone along such a busy road is a major public safety concern. And, as we’ve seen in recent storms, our landline phones aren’t as reliable as they used to be. Cell phones provide a needed backup.”

Vergati explained if all goes accordingly it will be about 18 months before the towers and equipment are up and running due to the time required for regulatory approval and construction.
