RAMSEY, N.J. — Can you hear me now?
The 140-foot Verizon cell tower recently erected on Ramsey Department of Public Works property isn’t equipped to provide service just yet, northjersey.com reports.
The project was the result of a coverage gap identified by cell providers, which under the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, forced the municipality to allow for a new tower somewhere in the borough, northjersey.com reported.
As part of the deal, Ramsey will have access to the tower for its emergency services, in addition to earning between $30,000 and $100,000 a year in revenue. Verizon is expected to activate the tower this fall, northerjersey.com reported.
