If there aren’t any towers in the area, a small point of presence can be installed.

Often times, we will contract a third party to do the grunt work on planting a 40 or 60 foot utility pole. These micro-POPs will house our transmission equipment. Other times, we use nature’s resources; such as this Gum tree in a landowner’s back yard. Rising above the foliage allows for a clear line-of-site from the transmitter to the neighboring community. Using this method, ECB’s signal can ping along to several destinations on the straight line. Though it may look unconventional, this fix is sturdy and gets the job done.
