Verizon Change in Tower Sharing ???

    Does anyone know,
    or suggest somewhere to verify
    if Verizon has discontinued their tower sharing contract
    with US Cellular or other providers in our area (Lake County, CA)?

    I've posted elsewhere here about our change in service quality
    and this suggestion by a Verizon Tech would offer a plausible
    explanation. Though, not surprisingly, the Tech could not/would not
    veriify this for our area.

    Thanks

    Those are usually long term leases and doubtful that
    a change in coverage would caused by this. That and the
    very high cost of re-engineering, provisioning backhaul, etc
    make this very unlikely.

    Your point is well taken.

    Though Verizon moved into the area only three years ago and might not
    they have anticipated the anlalog drop
    and construction of digital cells in their lease negotiation?

    Didn't someone mention/explain how the new cells were lower power and
    lower to the ground.
    This would seem verfied by Verizons claim to having towers in the two
    small towns near me that boarder the lake.
    and really not visible.
    The visible tower are on a mountain ridge.

    I don't know. It's little more than idle speculation I guess
    and time to upgrade my phone software or get a newer phone.

    thanks for the response.
