About the Project
In an ongoing effort to provide quality wireless service, T-Mobile has identified your community as one that will benefit from improved network coverage.
Milestone Communications is proposing a wireless telecommunications facility at Fauquier High School, addressed 705 Waterloo Road, Warrenton, VA 20186.
The proposal is for a 130-foot monopole and will include ground equipment required to operate the facility. This equipment will be located at the base of the structure in a secure fenced area. T-Mobile will be the first wireless carrier to locate on the proposed tower.
Update #1: There are two upcoming community events:

Community Balloon Fly – On Saturday, August 15th from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm with a weather delay date of Sunday, August 16th from 8:00 to 12:00 pm.
