What carriers are on what cell towers in Wilton?
Following a recent story in the Wilton Bulletin in which First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice discussed Wilton’s cell phone service, a list of Wilton’s cell towers and carriers was posted on the town’s website.
Carriers and major cell towers within the center area of town, according to the list:
AT&T on a tower at 287 Danbury Road, owned by Eversource, at 128 feet high.

There is a proposal to construct a cell tower in New Canaan near St. Luke’s School which may provide some coverage in areas in north Wilton, Vanderslice said. She encourages residents who support a tower in that location to contact the siting council and let it know.
Vanderslice said she is requesting a detailed map from the siting council to show the range of coverage from each tower in town.
