It's long been known that cell coverage on Hilton Head Island is considered poor at best, especially for you poor AT&T Iphone users out there (though 3G did just recently make an appearance on the island and in Bluffton.)
Seems Hilton Head officials, residents and mayoral candidates are finally taking notice. Check out the Island Packet writeup here. Lots of comments on the story.
The assertion that cell coverage on the island is poor because people want the beauty of the island without the blight of the towers must be disputed as there are dozens of resort destinations around the country that don't suffer from Hilton Head's gaps in coverage.
Don't feel bad though, Hilton Head. Cell coverage is an issue all over the county.
