Cell coverage grows

U.S. Cellular has added two cell towers to its Jackson County network in the Trail and Central Point areas, creating service where coverage was previously spotty or non-existent.

The tower near Trail covers an eight-mile radius providing wireless service in an area where cell phone users found connections poor or non-existent along Highway 62 between Shady Cove and Lost Creek Lake.

The new Central Point tower is near Old Stage Road, increasing coverage and network capacity along Interstate 5 between Central Point and Gold Hill.

The Chicago-based wireless provider has more than 230 towers in Oregon.
