FCC sez carriers lie


Recommended Posts

That is not however, the entire story. For instance, I have an AT&T tower 3 miles from my house, BUT, my house sits in a small valley surrounded by hills that are 200' higher than my house . I am lucky to get one bar so my cellular amplifier will have something to amplify.

The closest Verizon tower is 5 miles in the opposite direction, never any signal.

I finally upgraded our cell phones so I may connect to the cellular service via the internet, but must be within signal range of my router. I still cannot call DW (in house) while I'm out on the farm somewhere.:(

That IMO is not the result of any devious intent by cellular providers. This "dead spot" is less than a mile sq. and would not be visible on any  nationwide coverage map.

How does she know when to bring out the cold watermelon then?  You got one of those little can style air horns?

We still have the old dinner bell on a post in the yard, used it before cell  phones were invented.

DW said she's going to buy a dog training collar for me, and whenever she wants me she'll just push the button. This way even if I'm operating the tractor she can get my attention.:blink:
