A new Wireless Distributed Antenna System Network is using city-owned street light poles and traffic signal posts to enhance wireless phone and data usage in Boston neighborhoods. The service, installed by Extenet Systems and used by Verizon and other wireless carriers, offers better wireless service in exchange for a futuristic look and the reduced sidewalk space that is now occupied by the poles.
Watch a North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council meeting discussing the new antenna system and see a map of North End antenna locations here.
