Here’s Your Chance to Improve AT&T Cellular Service in the 415 – New, Improved Cell Towers All Over Town

I used to laugh at AT&T…

…but no longer.

People, you got to get out there and let AT&T put up towers and otherwise improve service. My sweet T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G isn’t going to work so hot post-merger unless you get out there and support a cell tower or something.

You live next to 3165 Steiner Street or someplace in Cow Hollow or the Marina? Well, then start fighting those NIMBYs post-haste.

Thusly (but please remember to double-check starting times if you’re actually going to go down to City Hall):

AT&T is working hard to improve wireless coverage in San Francisco and your support will help. AT&T proposes a new cell site at 3165 Steiner Street on top of the city-owned Lombard Street Garage.  In addition to improving wireless coverage for the residents of Marina and Cow Hollow, this upgrade will provide improved wireless coverage for commuters and residents who travel along the busy Lombard Street corridor, which is the gateway to the Golden Gate Bridge and US 101N.

You can show your support for better coverage in this area of San Francisco by emailing the Planning Commissioners and letting them know you supportAT&T’s efforts to improve service across San Francisco and specifically at the Lombard Garage location:


Attend the Planning Commission hearing at 2pm, on July 28, 2011 at San Francisco City Hall, Room 400.

Please feel free to share this information with your friends, neighbors and family members. AT&T wants all of our customers to enjoy the convenience, safety and security of quality wireless service now, and for many years to come. Your support will make a big difference.

For additional information go to

“There are a number of opportunities for you to learn more about our efforts to upgrade San Francisco’s wireless network, or speak up to support our work to bring you a better wireless experience. These events are usually community meetings, planning commission hearings, or meetings of the Board of Supervisors.

Please feel free to invite your friends, neighbors and family members. Your attendance at these meetings will make a big difference.

All Planning Commission Meetings are on Thursdays at San Francisco City Hall at 1:00pm.

    You could also just never go to the Marina, which is the preferable approach I already employ.

    That’s cold, baby!

    But they’re saying that this one tower will help coverage on the Golden Gate Bridge too…

  3. On the one hand, I’m for citizens taking an active role–but why didn’t Verizon need our help to build a reliable network? In September, ATT will loose me as a customer after 11 years of loyalty because they wanted me to advocate for their network more than they cared to. I’m not sure what ATT considers hard work, but apparently, it is not nearly as hard has Verizon has already worked and not bothered to brag about.

  4. sfcitizen says:

    All right, fair enough.

    I was with Sprint with zero reception problems in the 415 and now with T Mobile with just a few issues. Looks like I’ll be joining AT&T next year, whether I want to or not…
