Interesting example of MetroPCS meeting with town zoning board.

I have found a number of town meeting/ selectman/ Zoning Board meeting minutes that wireless carries have to go to in order to win town approval to build or add onto an existing site. It usually gives some advance info on where local sites will be built (and where I can keep an eye out to get some photos!).
In this example, from the town of Methuen, Mass Zoning Board, there is some expanded discussion on the permit application. It makes for an interesting read, especially the Zoning Board asking "exactly who is?" MetroPCS, since in July 2008, most people outside the industry in New England had never even heard of them!

TMobile Continues New England Build

TMobile continues their build in New England, with a solid coverage map now thruout Eastern Mass. Most new sites I see being built (and have photos that I am preparing to update on my site)are TMobile sites. Usually, they have been building sites at 2 or 3 times the pace of other carriers (just by my observations). I don't have them as a carrier, but I assume that customers must see a dramatic increase in coverage in this area. More to come!
