      What was the reason to put a COW here? Most times when I see a COW it is some large event and when the event goes and the people go, the COW goes too. Is this a hole that needed fixing till they got a permanent site up?
    • KyleAndMelissa22
      I'm really not sure but I guess that's a possibility.
      I really didn't see any other sites right near this one.

      Anyone else know about how COWs are used in this area, or who this might be?

      This is my 1st COW picture.

      The GSM carrier's use COW's in random places a lot more than the CDMA carriers do. So it's probably AT&T or T-Mobile.

      This is ATT. They are awaiting a permanent solution for the near by area.

      Well that solves the mystery. Thanks for the reply.

      I knew it had to be GSM. I wonder why GSM carrier's are so gung ho on using COW's? I never see Sprint using a COW unless it's the Rose Bowl.

      Funny how I've never seen a COW in Canada. I wonder why that is.
    • KyleAndMelissa22
      I've never seen them around North or South Carolina either, I guess they're not needed.

      I'm guessing that only major Metro areas have COWs
      due to new and additional sites needed or demanded to add capacity.

      Perm ATT site is being built across 101 freeway as a fake palm tree at the Ramada Inn's parking lot. Right now their feeder lines are hanging there and 4 cabs are in place (2 2106's and 2 3106's). No LTE equipment yet.
    There are no comments to display.
