I was overjoyed to see the new cell tower just east of Inwood off of Cheshire road. It has a Verizon Wireless sign on the gate, however, I still have no cell reception in that area. I suppose it could be a 4g only tower?

I have had Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile while living in the EP. All of which generally have horrible data speeds and coverage areas... Sprint does have limited 4g service in Inwood, capable of 6mb speeds.

With T-Mobile in Martinsburg you get a Maryland number! There are No Local Towers! So when storms hit Hagerstown or Frederick your stranded! I had T-Mobile for yrs! My number was 240 area code Hard for my friends to call me as some dont have Long Distance on their home phones. So I had to call them cost me the same as I had the Pay as you go plan. And when you dial 911 it show as Maryland Not WV/Martinsburg!

I have verizon now with a maryland number so that isn't a big deal. What is a 'home phone'?

Got Verizon 4g lte in Martinsburg, wv (roaming Extended Network LTE:14) 12 mbps up, 2.60 mbps down. There is no 3g. Same as Hagerstown, MD

If you don't have 4g lte, your roaming on 1x speeds
