A Verizon service booster placed by Verizon in a parking lot near the corner of 9th Street and Lexington Avenue has been removed due to complaints.
The booster was put into operation on March 26th after social distancing measures caused a massive spike in cellphone usage in Lakewood which adversely affected coverage.
A Verizon sales representative told TLS that the move was initiated after local residents “protested” against the cellphone booster.
In the interim, the tower has been placed at another location in Lakewood.
TLS has reached out to Verizon executives for comment.
