Part of this is due to the sudden influx of iPhones in the Silicon Valley that began in 2007, putting an almighty strain on the network; of the roughly 800,000 or so people living in San Francisco, we're estimating that around 10 million of them (or 1,150%) are carrying iPhones. Throw in ridiculous topography and monstrous buildings, and it starts to get tough to properly blanket the entire area in radio waves."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1270985991.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It should get a little easier since this past weekend AT&amp;T started selling their 3G MicroCell in the San Francisco area.&nbsp;</p>
