Anyone get an email from ATT urging you to request that your Congress person support something called the Small Cell Bill?

Just felt odd ....

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from... "All four major wireless carriers in the U.S. are looking to small cells to improve coverage and increase capacity in advance of 5G buildouts. The antennas, which can be as small as a lunchbox, can be placed on =E2=80=9Cst= reet furniture=E2=80=9D such as lampposts or traffic lights as well as on the si= des of buildings or other objects. And they sometimes require the installation of new poles that can be 120 feet or taller. Zoning and permitting headaches have slowed the small cell market. Some municipalities are fighting small cell deployments based on concerns over aesthetics, noise, rights-of-way issues and other worries."
