Updating cell towers att
AT&T claims that this tower is necessary for public safety in the Boundary Waters, but this claim is false.No area inhabited by people or regularly traveled in the Boundary Waters would be served by the mega-tower that would not also have been covered by a reasonable 199-foot tower.Despite what carrier the phone was originally on it has been “Unlocked” by the carrier for use on GSM networks.When you go to activate your phone on your carrier tell them you have a “GSM Unlocked” phone. You absolutely, positively, MUST follow these instructions EXACTLY! These instructions are for Straight Talk AT&T Towers activation.I decided to try Consumer Cellular after having had accounts with ATT, T-Mobile, and Verizon over a period of years.
The best option for cellular service in this location was a 199-foot, unlit tower.After seeing these negative reviews I feel compelled to chime in.I have been a CC customer for several years and the main reason I continue to be is the excellent customer service.That increased coverage would not be of any meaningful benefit to the residents of the Fall Lake Fernberg Corridor area or to people using the lakes and rivers of the BWCAW.” The Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness opposed this tower because of the visual impact that it will have on a wide swath of the BWCAW.Based on expert testimony, the District court found that the mega-tower will be visible from ten lakes in the BWCAW, while the Friends’ alternative of a 199-foot tower would not be visible from any of these locations.
