    I want to know where the closest AT&T tower is to my TN home I am building. My signal is so irratic and we are in hills. I have to go to the third floor to get a 2 bar signal and it does hold connection.

    You can try the following site. AT&T Towers

    However, this site only lists AT&T towers that AT&T actually owns, and is leasing out space on. It in no way represents their entire network. Good luck

    You could also try Crown Castle's web site at crowncastle.com

    Ron;

    Where in Tennessee are you building? AT&T has a coverage viewer that might be helpful.

    The only problem with Crown Castle is you have to be logged in as a member in order to be able to view their maps.

    This is pretty good advice, especially in a rural area. It is usually pretty easy to figure out the general vicinity where towers are based upon the "shape" of the covered area. From there it is just a matter of getting out and finding the exact location of the tower. It's also possible someone in an AT&T store might be able to assist you...but I have no idea.

    I wish they had sites with pictures and what not here in Canada. The tower maps we have tell you what carrier is on the tower, but no pictures.
