The cell phone companies need to install cell towers now because they have promised their customers complete internet services on their cell phones. That is NOT what cell phones were created for and NOT what the FCC should be promoting. Cell phone internet has NOTHING to do with the public good or the delivering of a "public utility." Cell phone internet has EVERYTHING to do with making MONEY for the cell phone companies... PERIOD.
The Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 is being perverted for economic gain by the cell phone companies delivering non-critical, optional "internet service" which has nothing to do with "wireless voice communications," nor was this ever envisioned by the FCC in 1996.
For this perversion of a public utility for pure profit we find ourselves confronted by a cell tower every 4 blocks being duplicated along the way by every company out there. The cell phone companies will make their cell phone internet profits at the expense of our health, our neighborhoods, and neighbors. This represents the pinnacle of economic perversion by a cell phone company hiding behind the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the FCC, all for the money they will make when people access the internet on their Chinese made iPhones.
