Sen. Vincent Sheheen (third from right) and Rep. Laurie Funderburk (second from right).
As AT&T announced the availability of its third generation (3G) mobile broadband network in Camden in early December, extending access for advanced mobile services, devices and feature-rich audio and video content to customers in the area, two Kershaw County legislators were recognized for their contributions toward helping such technological progress to be made. Area residents and businesses in Camden and surrounding neighborhoods can benefit from the 3G network carried across seven enhanced cell sites, as can Camden-area commuters travelling along Interstate 20. AT&T also recently launched two new cell sites in neighboring Fort Jackson along Hartsville Guards Road and Johnson Rifle Road, enhancing coverage for military personnel on the base.
