Re: 300' Tower Porn

Depending where you are, fiber is the more common/preferred method. But there's tons of sites out there that are so remote that bringing fiber to them is hell. So they just throw some T1s up and away they go.
If came right down to it... I would think you guys would go for microwave based back haul before using T1 lines....

Or am I missing part of this picture...

Many do microwave as well... The kicker is sometimes it's much cheaper and easier to bring in T1, than it is to fight with a shitty company (Cough, Bell, Rogers) to use space on their towers, when they are the only ones who can make the link.

It's a very closed market, in a difficult area.

That's the tower on Congress in Delray isn't it? Drive by it every day to work.

Neat to see what is going on inside of it. Thanks for sharing.
