ANCRAM–Some town residents say they have a backlog of cell phone rollover minutes.
Why? Because their cell phones don’t work in the southeast corner of Columbia County, so they can’t use up the minutes they have accrued.
But thanks to the efforts of Ancram’s cell phone committee of one–Bob Roth–that will soon change. Mr. Roth has been working on improving cell phone service locally for about two years and was finally able to make significant progress with help from former Congresswoman, now Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Greeley Ford, a network sales support manager with AT&T, came to the May Town Board meeting to assure residents he is working on the problem and Mr. Roth made it happen. But it won’t happen overnight.
