Now maybe the Luddites in South Berkshire might get the message - hey New Marlborough, Monterey and Great Barrington wake up and venture into the 1990's cell towers are OK.

That's a good sign! I am all for preserving the natural beauty of the area, but these towers are long overdue! Now, get some in place in Becket & Hinsdale that actually work and the Berkshires will be able to communicate.

I find it hilarious that everytime there is a wreck in Berkshire County you people get on and say; cell phone?? Then talk about the hazards of driving and talking. However as soon as they build a tower for service its comparable to "we're finally getting up to date w/ technology". Thats some good stuff people. Keep up the good work!

The ability to be able to communicate via cell phone is a wonderful advancement in technology. It saves time and yes, lives. The fact that people don't know enough to use the hands-free attachment when they are driving is not the fault of technological advancement- it is the fault of the ignorant user.
