It all started with an invitation via the mail. A company called OnAir sent an invitation to the residents of Oakmore, a silent neighborhood of single-family houses in Oakland, California via an envelope. They were invited to an open house where Verizon would explain them about its plan to install 16 new wireless antennas in their area.
The notice mentioned that Verizon Wireless is effective in improving wireless services in Oakland.
Alexis Schroeder, was really curious about this matter. So, she decided to attend the meeting that was set for a few weeks later. But, what disappointed her was the lack of straight answers at the meeting. So, she left promising to change Verizon’s plans. She was too a Verizon customer and agrees to the fact that she could benefit from new antennas. But, according to her, Verizon was trying to oppress the process, backed by FCC.
