Xplornet likewise doesn't own any poles, but we would definitely agree with your statement. It is mind-blowing to us that it takes longer to permit a pole than it does to permit a tower in some areas of this country. Understandably, there's public consultation and things like that associated with towers, but it can take longer to get access to a pole. That makes no sense to us.
