Last week residents in Oxford Triangle were concerned about a box that was installed on a street light pole and had a warning that stated “Radio frequency fields beyond this point may exceed the FCC General public exposure limit.” The council office was queried about the box.

Council Office Answer:

The device you asked about is a low power, wireless unit used by Sprint network for their cellular and data network. The locations are chosen based on the network demands and needs. The Bureau of Street Lighting reviews and approves these locations based on the type of pole and circuitry.

The Bureau of Street lighting has a Master Permit Agreement with Mobilitie, which allows them to install telecommunication equipment on street lighting poles. We have installed about 100 permits throughout the city.
