It leaves little to wonder about the quality of our news and reporting services when you do a little research.
It may be fair comment that there are concerns being expressed about small cells.
Not so great that not only a portion of the local community but also the local council appear to be ignorant of the technology and its existence?
Terrible that the ABC failed to inform us that this is neither a first or one off use of the technology, whether for 4G or 5G based services. Small cells are not specific to 5G as the following Telstra press release from 21st March 2018 (last year) reports.
Telstra has been using them for years!
We have installed more than 50 4G small cells across the Melbourne CBD as the first stage of a national small cell rollout to boost capacity and speed in some of Australia’s busiest locations.
A small cell is a miniature version of a standard mobile base station that adds additional mobile capacity at some of Australia’s busiest locations.
We’ve been using small cells to extend coverage mostly in rural and remote areas for several years, now we are deploying them in CBD locations around Australia as a cost-effective way to handle the ever growing demand for data.
Recently, we’ve completed a small cell blitz of Melbourne’s CBD, installing more than 50 new 4G cells at some of the city’s busiest locations. It’s part of a plan over the next three years to roll out 1,000 new small cells as part of boosting capacity and speed in metro and regional locations for our customers.
Edit: that the TPG plan reportedly uses Huawei technology to implement a 4G mobile solution adds to the misdirection?
