Cellular One is Accusing Cingular of "Blocking Towers"

by Ramonica R. Jones

An East Texas cell phone company is accusing another wireless retailer of blocking tower usage.  

Cellular One of East Texas said Cingular is not allowing its own customers to use Cellular One towers, but a spokesperson for Cingular said the company had a 'roaming agreement' with Cellular One years ago, so Cingular customers could get better service.

Since then, Cingular has built 15 new cell cites and is adding two more.

Cingular Wireless customers are now only using Cingular towers because of improved coverage.
