Say Hello to My Quite Large Friend: Distributed Antenna Systems Apparatus Popping Up All Over Frisco

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

I wondered

…and now here’s the answer, via a SOMA ENGINEER:

“It’s part of the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that the mobile providers are building to increase cell phone capacity.

Those antennas have been popping up all over town. A few months before the antenna is installed, a folder with about 10 printed pages will be attached to the pole. I suppose one could read that to get more info, but not sure if anyone does.

When the crew installs the antenna they tend to jostle the pole quite a bit. This causes the streetlight to burn out shortly after the antenna is installed. Seems like the City should require the crew to replace the streetlight with an LED light to prevent this, but if you check at night you will see a lot of the poles with antennas on them have burned out streetlights.”
