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

These antennas are for AT&Ts 4G network to download data, and they are in a solely residential neighborhood, on a quiet street. The residents are wondering who is going to be downloading big packets of data to their cellular phones at their own house? we use our WIFI for our laptops and tablets when at home. Are these 60 foot poles being put in front of our yards, (20 feet from our bedrooms at some points) in case someone decides to drive by and download data ? this is not downtown Rockville is a 2 way low traffic road...and by the way we are not NIMBYs we are NIABYs (Not in anyone's backyard).

I think they are uploading data too.

It's hard to take anyone against them seriously unless they are willing to give up their wireless devices like cell phones and other devices. They want all this stuff and good wireless coverage but not the equipment that provides it. It has to be placed where it is needed.

The "I have wifi at home" argument isn't really valid: as 4G networks are rolled out more thoroughly, the voice services on your phone handset will be moved over to the new technology and the older systems will be decommissioned. These services need a solid network to fall back on if wifi is unavailable. Do you trust your $50 linksys router to handle 911 calls?

I like having public sewer service. I realize that the typical American thinks public sewer service is a basic utility, and the infrastructure that supports it is necessary and justified. However, it'd be unreasonable to expect me to accept a large sewage treatment plant being built across the street from my house. It's not unreasonable to expect me to accept a small lift pump shack to be installed across the street from my house. I see your DAS installation as more of the latter.

This is completely false for this specific DAS, I have 4 bar reception with AT&T and have one of this poles in front of my house. Also, there is another DAS in the same area with a different set of poles from Next G for Sprint...talk about efficiency and collocation!
