Lakewood, NJ - Some township residents hope to slow down the march
of cell phone technology for religious reasons.

An online petition was posted asking Verizon to reconsider their
decision to phase out 3G service in Lakewood because many residents
don't wish to upgrade their phones that require 4G and 5G towers.
Verizon said in a statement that they would support their 3G (EVDO)
network through the end of the decade. But the company has spent $5.4
billion in New Jersey since 2015 on upgrading their network to 4G and
laying the groundwork for 5G.
