It is really ugly to put up more antenna on top of utility poles. In mountain view, we already have too many boxes on these poles, and I worry that who is goging to clean up these junks in a couple of years when technologies are advanced and these antennas or boxes are not needed any more.
A new mono pole cell tower was placed near my office. It was sold as an unobtrusive design and would not impact the area and improve the cell coverage for our company. 8 trees were taken down along with parking for 10 cars. The 4 story "fake redwood design" looks out of place among the other 2 story trees that remain. And the ground support equipment is the size of a semi truck trailer. The chain link fence around the area fits right in as we are prisoners to the cell phone. The coverage is still poor with all the new 4G users in the area. Does anyone really notice the Google internet boxes on the poles now?
As a Frequent Visitor to The Shoreline Park for Concerts the sheer explosion of Smart phones and tablets in use the last few years at these events where thousands of people are located in one spot seems to constantly overload the network in surrounding areas due to simple supply and demand of bandwidth. And after reading this article, itâ€™s my opinion that those officials in charge of Shoreline should reconsider there objection to towers or Mini towers inside the Venue for simple safety reasons. Why should it wait until someone gets badly hurt and no one is able to call for help to push officials to act?
