As Vertical Consultants has established, there is a direct link between the population’s increasing reliance on cell phones and the growing demand for more and more cell towers. Thus, there is a need for additional cell towers to be constructed, as well as a need to continue the use of existing cell towers. This has been reconfirmed by an article “New Phone Habits Mean More Cell Towers” in www.nbcphiladelphia.com. (Link to article: http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/tech/Cell-Towers-Become-Norm-New-Jersey-200976461.html).
The rise of powerful smart phones in today’s market has created the dependency on more towers, in order to transmit a variety of signals, other than just a voice. Now, people rely on wireless service to conduct online business, check emails, surf the net…you name it. The surge in cell towers has become a norm in today’s society, and is considered much less of an eyesore than it was 15 years ago. This is a sign of the times and an indicator of the growing need for more cell towers so that the population can stay connected and “plugged in”.
