Re: Upgrade towers
In Texas, the process of building a cell tower, from initial request to final build, takes only about 6 weeks.
But in some parts of the country, (New York, California etc) simply getting a permit to build one cell tower can take 3-5 years or longer. Then the actual build takes a couple more years.
There is also the problem of NIMBYism.
In San Francisco they recently passed a law that said that the construction of a cell tower can be permenantly halted if ONE PERSON objects to it. That makes network upgrades rather difficult to implement, to put it somewhat mildly.
