      AFAIK this is the first former Qwest site Verizon Wireless has decided to use in Utah County. All week a crew was out working on adjusting each of the three panels, which comprise three sectors, and putting in equipment. There's a big backup power generator in one side of the equipment shelter. I got to take a good look inside.

      This site is a very short distance down hill from VZW's "Provo East Mountain" site on the mountainside below the big white letter Y. Its placement seems strange because I would think we'll get a lot of RF pollution now.

      The guys working on the site told me Verizon is having to turn it on because the other nearby sites (East Mountain and the city power smokestacks on Freedom Blvd) are maxed out. I'm pretty impressed, since those two maxed-out sites each have a ton of equipment.

      I've been down at BYU a few times after the school year started and have never experienced any capacity issues whatsoever...not inbetween classes, before/after school or during a game. I'm sure that the Provo East Mountain site is handling a hell of a lot of traffic and that one day there may be problems because traffic increases as time goes by.
      Let us know how this works out once the site is turned on. Also, keep us informed if Verizon decides to use any other former Qwest sites in Utah county.
