    I was at my camp this past week and still there is zero coverage between Ontonagon and 3 miles south of Toivola, MI (M-26)

    In talking to the locals they all had heard Alltel had plans to build a tower at Twin Lakes to fill the gap, yet now they are wondering if Alltel has backed away from that plan as nothing has occurred.

    Does anyone have any news on this???

    Thanks

    I'm not familiar with this area at all but the best way to find out would probably be the city/county, where ALLTEL would have to apply for a permit to put up a tower.

    From talking to a few techs over at Alltel, the focus for them in Michigan is to get the EVDO upgrades done and running. If you read some of the news releases on Alltel, they want to get their revenue from Data up. I am up in the Northern Lower Pennisula and the rumors the Alltel guys have heard is just work on Data and not much focus on new stuff, due to being up for sale.

    Check with your township hall.

    I wasn't able to find any approvals for towers in that area. Doesn't look like anything's going up right now.
