Maine Cellular Coverage

Gov. John Baldacci of Maine has put forward an initiative to improve cell phone coverage in the State of Maine. The governor understands that in the year 2005, good telecommunications infrastructure is important for the growth and economic development of the state. Maine has an extensive tourism economic base, and good cellular coverage can only help. Residents of Maine would benefit from the expanded cell coverage. I have found that once you leave the Maine Turnpike, the coverage is less than ideal in many areas. Of course, this is mostly an economic decision on the part of the wireless carrier. There are not enough users, and too many miles of forest to cover. Maybe the governors initiative will help move this issue forward.
