    I sure wish the people promoting this ‘wonderful’ technology would address the serious health ramifications of multi-family dwellings with hundreds of meters. There might as well be 100 cell towers right inside their apartments. This boodoogle is a future health nightmare. But the PUCs, utilities, and companies grabbing for their piece of the pie NEVER mention health aspects that will ruin some people’s lives.
