    Ever seen a log cabin tower building. This site is in a natural area and this what we had to do to get the site built. Cellone is on the left, Verizon just put in the building on the right. Notice no stain yet and no stone, there still building it.

    Lame. You wouldn't notice the building unless you were on top of it, but the giant ugly tower can be seen for miles.
    I thought they were working on natural looking towers? What happened to this?

    In 20 years, all these towers will be extinct and left to rot surely or, used for amateur or discount services. I hope by then we will have a better solution than blighting the land with aluminum.

    Just my two cents..

    If you dont like towers why are you on the website.

    There is alot more eyesores to worry about than tower. I do believe that towers should be held to a minimum and as many people as possible should share towers instead of building towers across the street from each other.

    Look at telephone poles the next time your out on a drive, you cant tell me that telephone poles stung up everywhere isnt an eyesore.

    The thing about cell phones is people want service but dont want towers.

    Yeah I don't think they are much of an eye sore because of their purpose. There are a few rare areas where the scenic look and whatnot should remain untouched. But only a few places fit that category. Just think of how many ugly telephone poles we could eliminate if we all went to cells? Not to mention the decrease in car accidents into them. :)

    Stealth towers are built when needed, but they are expensive often don't do much to hide the towers anyway. It's unlikely towers will be abandoned in the foreseeable future because wireless traffic is increasing and new applications continue to be developed. There will be more towers built and people will get used to them just like we have gotten used to other things like the aforementioned telephone poles - as well as all other infrastructure of modern civilization like water tanks, highways, buildings, electrical sub-stations, sewer plants, prisons, malls etc. If you ask someone where the nearest cell tower is to their house, they almost never know because they generally don't notice them.

    BTW - poles are made of galvanized steel.

    It's true. When T-Mobile installed a rather large, un-stealth monopole in a shopping center back home, my mother had no idea it was even there until I pointed it out!

    Before I got in the Biz I really didnt pay attention to towers and only really noticed them at night time with the lights and everyone back then assume it was a radio or tv tower. The only other towers I noticed back then was the huge AT&T microwave towers with the huge Ice Cream cone antennas on the top.

    I will go to customers house to check problems and I will bring up the closest tower and the customers response normally is "I have lived here my whole life and never noticed that tower".

    The only problem here is, the electric & Cable companies would still want to use them, but yeah it would make things look cleaner without them.
