What's the latest on getting Cell Service to the Hollow?

    SHHA is working with the County and the SHFire Protection District to have more reliable communication during emergencies and at all times, including potential cell service. New advances with "micro towers" may make cell service more feasible, but telecom companies have not been very interested so far.
    SHHA Board member Pete Mayer and resident Bob Lasser are working to move that ball forward, and also to provide information we can all use to have our landlines maintain service in power outages.

        Look at the economics for the cell carriers.

        We have 4 carriers splitting maybe 1000 homes 2 users per. Getting a tower permitted is problematic at best.

        The valley is dead end no volume of users like travelers SFD has.

        AT&T has no desire to lose their landline revenues. While they don’t want to support the copper wires to the house. They will hold on until competition forces them to do something in the future.

        In a disaster these towers require auxiliary power. How many days of generator fuel can they keep on site? Look no further than NOrth Bay fires in October. Or during hurricanes that we experienced.

        We are a low priority. Lots of info out there on the issues.

          Any carrier that I can get a signal with along Butterfield, I am willing to cut ties with my current carrier including cancellation fees. I work virtually across many time zones so this is more than just for personal use, this is my lively hood.

            if you use ATT and have an iPhone, you can use wi-fi calling feature. No need for cell tower.

              if you use Comcast Xfinity and have an iPhone, you can use wi-fi calling feature. No need for cell tower.
