BOONSBORO - A cellular company that received complaints when its signal went down has restored service in the Boonsboro area, a Cellular One spokesman said.

Craig Davis said Thursday that the company has addressed customers' complaints and erected a 185-foot tower near where a 60-foot tower once stood. Both towers are on Maryland Department of Natural Resources land, he said.

The first tower was taken down in compliance with a Federal Communications Commission ruling. At the time, Ed Ryan, director of wireless communications for the Department of Natural Resources, said the state was negotiating with a company affiliated with Cellular One to allow the cell phone company temporary use of a new tower.

Davis said service, which was down about 30 days, was restored last weekend.
