Lakeside Installation of Small Cell Antennas to Help Cell Coverage
Better cell service for AT&T customers should be in the cards this month for customers in the Lakeside DFW area. Crews from Microwave Transmission Systems, Inc. began the process of installing 12 small cell antennas in Lakeside in mid-December.
“I expect it will be near the end of February before all the antennas are operational,” said MTSI’s Pat Kelly, who oversaw the process.
Antennas will be located throughout the community, including three in the median of Lakeside Parkway (one between Northwood and Surrey, and two between the northern and central roundabouts) and one near Sunset Point. Poor cell service has been a way of life in Lakeside, a hangover from the lack of residents in southern Flower Mound prior to 2015.
Funding for the small cell antenna network was approved by AT&T in November 2017, but developers hope to include other service providers.
“We are also petitioning to implement a similar program within Lakeside for other carriers such as Verizon and T-Mobile,” said Jimmy Archie, managing partner of Realty Capital.
