Networks vs Pokémon Go

Pokemon_GoOriginally posted on Tower Power

Have you noticed that in the past couple weeks, your wireless connection isn’t as good as it used to be? The culprit might surprise you:

“I don’t even know what a Pokémon Go is, but I know it’s placing tremendous demands on the wireless networks,”

said Edward Donohue, in The Sentinel’s article, ‘Council considers removing cell tower restrictions’. Pokémon Go is a location based augmented reality game that is extremely popular. What does that actually mean?

Players – called Pokémon Trainers – use the app, the phone’s GPS and camera to explore the real world and catch Pokemon, as if they were in the same world. The app uses mobile data to operate, and the additional usage is straining cellular networks around the country, causing some zoning boards to consider adding cellphone towers.

Concealed cell towers are a win-win: with concealed wireless equipment, neighborhood ‘Pokémon Trainers’ are happy, and your signal is improved. Do you think it’s a winning move? See more about concealment options at
