    From this AZ Central article:

    Residents fight cell-tower plan at Peoria funeral chapel

    "Clearwire, which is building a 4G network, has had a flurry of applications in the Valley. The Washington state-based wireless company has withdrawn applications in Chandler and Gilbert, exploring other sites, after protests. An application in Mesa was outright denied. "

    Trying to spin this positive... Looks like they are trying to get 4G in Metro Phoenix :cool:.

    Must heard Illegal immigrants like to use 4g and stream Telemundo, so Az is banning 4G all together. :cool:

    It's all the NIMBY's who don't want any technology getting in the way of their precious views. If it were me, I'd let Sprint/Clear put a tower in my backyard and they pay me rental fees. :D

    I wonder too. There are some of these around town disguised as saguaro cacti and from a distance, you can't tell any difference. Wonder if 4G towers can be hidden like this or do they look like the regular antennas?

    I've seen a bunch of the palm tree ones. the cactus ones would just look silly unless they were on a mountain / hill top. A 40' cactus will stick out like a sore thumb - lol.

    You really don't notice it unless you look for it.

    I had to laugh one night. I was reading reviews of local restaurants on the Yelp app and one of my favorite watering holes has 3 or 4 of these cacti antennas on their property. Someone wrote in the review that they have these fake looking cacti outside, etc. Obviously, not a cell phone junkie like us. :p

    I've been researching permits for 4g here in Tucson and no fights yet...in fact my kids' school district just approved towers on two schools, one about a mile from my house...just waiting now.

    For those here, I found permits near the tucson mall, pima/alvernon, off I19 and in Marana...

    There are plenty of Camouflage towers in Chicago...they just don't look like Palm trees because that would look weirder than a traditional tower.
