Can't Use Mobile Phones On Sand Hill Road

from the perhaps-that's-a-good-thing dept

Yet another Sand Hill Road story… The place to be for venture capitalists is apparently not the place to use your cell phone. Many services have a dead zone around Sand Hill Road for a variety of reasons – mainly having to deal with the inability to install new cell sites due to zoning restrictions and angry residents. It really does depend on which service you use. My SprintPCS phone has never given me a problem on Sand Hill Road, but others seem to be problematic. Some venture capitalists say they like the fact that they’re “cut off” from their cell phone while they’re at work. Of course, if that’s the case, why do they even have their cell phones on in the first place?
