How to get a cell phone tower on my property?

by Angela

I'd like to find out how to get a cell tower on my property because our coverage really stinks on my iPhone. We were Verizon customers and switched to Cingular AT+T when the iPhones came out but the coverage isn't great at all now. Every day around 3PM like clockwork my service starts dropping calls and I can't figure out why. We have a 2 acre commercial zoned property in Columbus Ohio on a fairly busy street that has residential and commercial mix. The closest cellular tower is 1 mile to the North and 3/4 miles to the South and I'm not sure about the other directions. How can I get a cell tower out here?

iPhone dropping calls
by: Angela

Wow I never thought of that! My iPhone starts dropping calls like clockwork around 3pm every day. We have 2 high schools within 1/2 mile of where our business is located where we'd love to have a cell tower. I guess I'll try calling or contacting AT+T first to see if they are planning any new towers here. It makes complete sense. Thanks so much.

About the iPhone dropping your calls. AT&T is having coverage issues because of network capacity. The iPhone is an AWESOME phone. My guess, and maybe I'm wrong, is that the reason you drop calls every day at 3pm is that then is when all the pimple-faced high school kids get out of school nearby and all turn on their phones and start calling their friends. How close is the nearest high school to your location?
