Cellular coverage during inaugeration!

I meant to write this a few days ago, but here it is a few days after the inauguration and I'm just getting to it now. There was some great coverage about the work all the major providers in DC were doing, and the build up to make sure calls, texts , and photos were going to go thru OK. It looks like most of the providers used COW and COLTs to provide additional coverage, and with the exception of some reports of Texts coming an hour or so after being sent, there weren't many huge issues with coverage. I did notice in one shot while the president was traveling to the White House, there was a shot of an AT&T COLT right next to the road (It had a huge AT&T 'world' logo on the side of the truck!)

At the very beginning, mobile phone towers used only a fixed number of frequencies for carrying voice data. Whenever someone called, two separate frequencies were used. One was for the incoming signal and the other for the outgoing one. Thereafter, governments across the world permitted over 200 frequencies for mobile phones with some extra frequencies for transferring data.
