CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Shenandoah Valley-based telecommunications company Shentel is laying off hundreds of employees as part of a restructuring plan.

About 340 employees across Shentel’s six-state service area will be laid off.

The company expects to close a sale of its wireless assets to T-Mobile during the early third quarter of this year.

Shentel says most of its layoffs are employees who support wireless operations and will not automatically transfer to T-Mobile.
