Bainbridge is the worst for cell phone service | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

I visited Bainbridge last week for the Grand Old Fourth as a tourist having just moved away after 18 years of living on the island.

I stayed in a little cottage on the south end near Lynwood Center on Lytle Road and I can only say that after living on the island for so many years I’m totally surprised that the cell service on the South End (and many other areas) is probably the worst I have ever experienced, some places nonexistent all together!

Why? Today they hide cell towers disguised as evergreens, palm trees, and church steeples. So why is it so damn hard to put a few more of these up where they are sorely needed? Even your 80-year-old grandmother has a smartphone now and needs to “reach out and touch someone”!

With so many pillars of the business community living in these dead zones, you’d think there’d be a change, but no. Are the anti-change Island lobbyists really that strong?
