Many Caliente residents have experienced slow cell phone data, and people say there are hours of the day when cell phone data is not accessible.
T-Mobile received approval at the April 7 city council meeting for a conditional use permit to have a cell tower in Caliente at parcel 0131781 near the transfer station. The tower will bring 4G data for mobile devices.
The parcel is currently owned by Adam Katschke. T-Mobile will build the tower on a 100 by 100 foot section. It is expected the tower to be up and operational by the end of the year.
