Fake Plastic Trees, Part 3

31 Dec

It lasted three and half years.  Then it broke in half.

Top half of cell tower blew off in windstorm.

The tower initially hosted AT&T in 2010. Verizon added their equipment about a year and half later.  So now the town is without cell service.  My guess is that it will take at least a month to get it 100% operational again.  It probably could be done sooner, but I’m guessing the corporations will have to work out some bureaucratic issues.  I question whether they should fix this thing or replace it with a stronger tower.

Edited to add: Today they put up some temporary antennas.  Pretty good service from a large corporation on New Year’s Eve!

For now it’s back to landline here at home.
