Imagine a world where these cell towers weren’t even thought of yet, a landscape devoid of them. A world without that handy little device stuffed in your pocket, purse or fanny pack. A world where you can’t instantly chat with friends across the globe.
These towers are of course just one piece of our connected world, other links such as the thousands of miles of Trans-Atlantic cables crossing many oceans laid upon the ocean floor, and satellite communications of course.
They are all just one link in a chain that crosses hundreds of thousands of miles. Next time you see one of these towers, consider the complexity of the technology you use each day and how wonderful it is, yet for all of it’s power, it is rather fragile. Just like when your phone screen cracks!
