centermedic Posted June 22, 2013 Share Posted June 22, 2013 Looking for some advice. Here is the issue. Recently I went camping at a Boy Scout camp. We encountered some adverse weather. At this point I was told that our local Scout council had set up a system where you could be advised via text of adverse weather. The rub? Cell service at the camp is spotty at best. Verizon has the best coverage but is still unreliable, Sprint has some native coverage but you still roam quite a bit when you get a signal and AT&T and T-mobile have no service at all. I think this is an unsafe situation so I started wondering if we could get a tower and have the major providors co-locate on the tower. Power is not an issue and backhaul could be done by microwave. So the question is how do I make this happen? Should we flip the cost of the tower and invite the companies? Or should we contract out with a cell tower company and let them do the heavy lifting? Is there a better alternative? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
