Update: Rogers proposing to build a cellphone tower in West Vancouver with different colours and “lights to create a kind of public art”


  • Accophox

    Well, they’ve gotta find some way to spend all that money they make from their insane ARPU. 🙂

  • Ken

    This tower must be the reason why Rogers will be increasing the cost to upgrade your phone early. The customers have to cover the cost of this new tower.

    reception is pretty spotty in west van, it really saps the battery on my already poor battery nexus 4. I’m all for it, should cause a stir with all the well-to-do seniors in the area, which should be fun!

    • Jason

      Doesn’t West Van also have a lot of obstructions that would be the reason why coverage is spotty?

    • CADDMan71

      Yes, the obstructions are wealthy land owners who don’t want cell towers in their neighbourhoods but insist on better coverage.

  • Anthony W

    As long as they are expanding coverage and building towers, I am all for it.

  • ConsciousConsumer

    This will be on the news with all the Luddites complaining feverishly.

  • Jason Lui

    Another group of morons commenting who just want “free service” “free phone”. Most people on here most likely don’t have jobs. Start complaining about the price of gas… Oh wait, you can’t afford to own a car.

    • FuzeCok

      You’re right, I don’t have a job. I retired when I was 33, are you still working? 😉

    • Rhett H

      Wow, stay in your cave and don’t ever come out.

    • Henry

      It’s a shame you wasted your first comment to say a bunch a nonsense. Not even sure you read the article. Btw, I’m currently typing from work, I’m a business owner and your likely a gas pumper based on your intelligence.

    or they could just let the NIMBYers not have cell service.

  • Marcus

    I find the fake tree towers look stupid when around real trees and kind of cheapen everything.

  • Balls O’Steele

    Looks like a giant vertical cigarette. They will put ugly advertising on it.

    Reverse engineered from alien hardware.

  • gua_ca_mo_le

    Could distract drivers? I’m sorry, but if electronic billboards can exist, I see no problem with this.

  • HatInTheRing

    Love it. Why do towers have to be eye sores? They need to start disguising things like this that ruin skylines.

  • Tom Morris

    Nice Idea 🙂 It could catch on .

  • Henry

    It’s a great idea if it’s art and not one big flashy ad. It should pass local public approval.
