metroPCS - proposed cellular antennae collocation

Discuss Coverage and new Buildouts

In some city areas Metro is using 'distributed antenna systems' where antennas are placed on light poles telephone poles etc. I've read they are doing this right now in Brighton.

If you do a google search, metropcs + massachusetts + antenna it comes back with a ton of pages related to zoning requests all over Massachusetts. A couple of RI cities come back when replacing MA w/RI

Thats one way to deal with small areas, but can you imagine how many cells Metro would need for a decent PCS buildout? It will be interesting to see what the coverage area looks like.

Metros coverage will probably be terrible for years before it matures enough. If you had coverage in your house though $30 a month is a pretty cheap replacement for a landline and competitive with VOIP minutes wise.. Landline has no 'coverage' so being able to take the Metro phone anywhere would be an advantage over the landline. I imagine they'll do well in Boston.

If MetroPCS merges with Cricket (which analysts still expect to happen despite Cricket turning them down before) they will start to look a lot like Sprint did in the 90's.

Metro is great for a single person, I know a lot of people never bother with landlines any more.

Been hearing more things locally about metroPCS, new antennas, etc. Nothing in my town yet.
