NEW SERVICE ALERT: Flowery Branch, Georgia

 

A new Sprint/Clear 4G WiMax tower is now active in the NE Atlanta suburb of Flowery Branch. This gets spotty coverage all the way out to Gainesville now. This tower actually went live a few weeks ago, but it never got posted. Turn on your 4G antennas, scan for service and start surfin'!

SERVICE RESTORED: Fortuna Foothills, Arizona (east Yuma)

 

The Fortuna Foothills tower east of Yuma, Arizona was taken offline at the beginning of the month. But today it's back up again. Rumor I heard was that it was creating interference across the border in Mexico with a foreign broadcaster. I guess it's been taken care of!
