Re: how close can a cell tower be to a house?

It is very hard to tell from the picture with all the lower level trees but it does look like there is a fiber run to the pole that does not continue past the pole.

It could be CATV, but the inline can looks suspiciously like a fiber amplifier.

Fiber amp?? Pretty sure it is a splice box/container, so yes it is fiber, but not an amp.

True, there is a lashback there (and a pretty sloppy one at that) with a splice can, but from this angle, it's impossible to say if it's connected to equipment at the pole, or if it's just coincidental...

True, it looks like all the cables go up the pole on the back side that we cant see. IMHO with it appearing to be the last pole with nothing past it, unless they have FTTH there, i wouldnt see them running fiber and stopping in a residential area like that for a different reason?

Nothing says it isn't a "dip" - that the aerial structures go underground at that point... Again, no real way to tell from the OP's picture.

Or, the fibre could terminate there, and be feeding that radio equipment... Dunno...
