The city of Madison isn't allowing TDS to go near the tower for months, so they can't fix the WiMax transmitter. I had to find a new internet provider. TDS probably isn't going to fix the transmitter since all of the customers are going to be switching and TDS has discontinued WiMax expansion. Unfortunately, I think my AT&T cell tower was also in the water tower since my signal has been horrid ever since the fire.
Yeah, you got hit on both counts. If I recall correctly the carriers on that tank were Einstein, AT&T and Sprint, though Sprint may have come off prior to the fire for the tank painting. I believe AT&T is rushing to get a temporary cell set up to fill the gap, but you're unfortunately in for a spell of shitty reception until they can get it up and running.
