Ok so lets say we have communications tower number 1 and comms tower number 2, if one were to get wiped out by a power surge, could the other sustain connection to the area?

    $\begingroup$ “Communications towers” contain many different types of radio equipment that work in different ways. An accurate answer will depend on which radio service you're concerned with (cellular, amateur radio, business/public safety, point-to-point links for internet or private use...) Please consider editing your question to be more specific. (Do not use the answer box to respond.) $\endgroup$

It depends, If both towers are in the same place or the one tower that doesnt get cut out can reach past the other ones bounties, then yes it is possible. That is a very good question by the way.
