Featured In The Wall Street Journal: “People of 5G”

With the ongoing advancement of cellular technology in today’s world, it becomes more and more important to not only maintain, but also improve cell tower capabilities. These cell towers can provide access to anyone, anywhere in the world within seconds. Thanks to this powerful technology, consumers enjoy the benefits of an efficient and effective form of communication. The feeling of immediate gratification is evident among smart phone users as they view comments, almost instantaneously, on their status updates, articles tweeted, or pictures shared on Instagram. Naturally, it can’t be all unicorns and rainbows when technology is involved. The networks must be accessible, and wireless access isn’t possible without cell towers. More times than not, consumers want the conveniences of technology, but don’t want to be inconvenienced by having to look at a cell tower every morning while they drink their coffee.

A representative for a telecom company commented on the process of selecting cell tower sites and stated, “It’s a fairly complicated process that requires a lot of engineering. It’s not as simple as saying, ‘Hey this looks like a good site. Let’s move it here” (Link to http://www.semissourian.com/story/1984242.html). If consumers want to reap the benefits and all of the wireless bells and whistles that are continually advancing, we must acknowledge that towers are a necessity for these conveniences.
