There are four cell phone towers in town. One is within the Leon Levy Preserve near Route 123, the other is in Goldens Bridge on state land between Route 22 and I-684 at Exit 6A. The 150-foot tower in Goldens Bridge is part of the Statewide Wireless Network, which is an effort to upgrade the state’s emergency communications systems.

Residents living in the previous cell phone “dead zone” along Route 35 and into Waccabuc and Cross River got relief in late 2010 after the greenlight was given to a permit for the construction of a cell tower on wheels (COW) at a town-owned site adjacent to the town park on Route 35.

Homeland Towers has built a tower with AT&T Wireless and Sprint/Nextel on forested land behind the Vista Fire Department. The property is owned by the fire department and provides coverage in Vista. The tower  includes antenna space for other providers as well. Verizon has had plans to add a tower in town.
