Licensed wireless providers in Boston
Telecommunication companies maintain antennas across the City. Some of them are installed on City property, such as streetlights, utility poles, traffic lights, and more. These antennas are known as "small cells." They improve cell phone and data service in Boston.
Wireless antennas are closely regulated by the FCC. Small cell antennas transmit very low levels of radio waves compared to traditional cell antennas.
