Could a cell tower be placed along the west side of Milne lake right along the New York border? It's an elevated location without any houses, and it would cover the last corner of town that doesn't get consistent cell service.

The northeast corner does not get consistent cell service either. ALL calls drop including calls to 911 when roads are closed due to downed trees on wires.

This would be GREAT!! Hope you can get complete cell coverage in our Town.

Cell coverage in new canaan is among the worst of any town that I have observed. I am glad our new First Selectman is getting the right people involved to tackle this. Remember though, we have to convince the cell companies that they need to improve coverage - which is a tall order. The customers of these companies can best help by lodging complaints with their cell providers about coverage issues / dropped calls, etc...

It seems that cell service in New Canaan has gotten even worse over the past year. In areas where I never had problems with dropped calls, I now get them all the time and I am still with the same provider...AT&T. It's unacceptable that so many areas in our town are completely without coverage.

cell service is a matter of strategically placed towers. no towers, no reception. simple as that. when you factor in economics, not in my back yard, etc. there are insuffcient towers and resulting insufficient service. if the first selectman wants to accomplish something, find out the general locations for where towers are needed, find a public spot for such locations and get it done.
