Mobilitie Shocker: A Reasonably-Decent Camouflaged Design

After Mobilitie’s Gary Jabara’s particularly repugnant and inexcusably-insulting remarks about local governments published in AGL Magazine last month, who would have expected his firm to finally join the rest of the wireless industry and propose enclosing site equipment within radomes atop light standards?

What’s even more shocking is that this design does away with all . . . → Read More: Mobilitie Shocker: A Reasonably-Decent Camouflaged Design

Mobilitie’s Increased Transparency is Somewhat Opaque
