INSCRIPTION HOUSE, Ariz. — Cellular One’s engineering and technical operations team recently announced the company’s newest cell site is live at Inscription House, located seven miles west of Shonto and five miles north of Highway 98 on Indian Route 16.

The site provides new mobile data coverage and greater network capacity to Inscription House and surrounding community centers, health clinics and schools. This tower site also fills coverage gaps between Page and Kayenta as well as north of Navajo Mountain.

With Internet connectivity and mobile coverage, locals can enjoy better quality of life, and tourists can travel throughout the great Navajo Nation with peace of mind knowing that they have a reliable network to navigate these vast and remote lands.”
