AT&T pushes to keep cell tower information from being used at trial
“AT&T is trying to keep the court from hearing how the company speaks out of both sides of its mouth by keeping public advertisements out of the public record,” said Kathy Sullivan, a South Mammoth Road resident who has spoken against the tower.
“The maps on our coverage viewer depict a high-level approximation of wireless coverage — not granular neighborhood by neighborhood coverage detail — and include clear disclosures and links to detailed information about what the maps represent,” wrote AT&T New England spokesman Will Keyser in an email.AT&T has filed suit against the city of Manchester in federal court, challenging past decisions by the Manchester Zoning Board of Adjustment to reject a 100-foot tower off South Mammoth Road near Green Acres School.The Zoning Board did so most recently in September, and the case has returned to U.S. District Court in Concord.
The company has said the federal Telecommunications Act gives it the right to override local ordinances to improve wireless coverage.
On Jan. 6, city lawyer Peter R. Chiesa filed paperwork to introduce the website maps.
Anderson said AT&T had submitted actual drive test results and testimony from highly qualified experts demonstrating coverage gaps and problems.
