King Street Wireless and U.S. Cellular Announce Plans to Bring Wireless Service to Paw Paw, West Virginia

Alexandria, VA (June 17, 2015) – King Street Wireless, L.P., in conjunction with its partner, U.S. Cellular, announced plans to bring high-quality wireless voice and broadband service to the residents of Paw Paw, W. Va. sometime in the first quarter of 2016. U.S. Cellular is the first wireless carrier to provide service for the town.

Earlier this year, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) initiated the search for a carrier, asking U.S. Cellular to address the lack of broadband access for Paw Paw residents, and highlighting the benefits that the community will receive by having access to the same level of telecommunication services that residents in more populated areas receive.

"Cell phone and internet access is critical to live, work and compete in today's economy and marketplace," said Senator Capito. "Small communities across West Virginia lack this fundamental infrastructure and lack access to vital opportunities as a result. This announcement is great news for jobs and growth in the Eastern Panhandle, and I was happy to help make it a reality."
