A most interesting article in the EDP today about 4 G coverage being upgraded within 18 months.But Dr Matthews said for that to happen landowners and customers would need to get behind planning applications for new transmitters and masts.
He said phone companies faced challenges finding the land for masts and sometimes struggled to get planning permission.
“We want people to come and help us,” he said. “They need to support planning applications. Ultimately that support can tip a planning application from unacceptable to acceptable. We want to put infrastructure where people want to use it.”
This is going to be a tricky one as I can't see many riverside locations getting planning permission for these much required masts.
I can't help but wonder what the solution would actually be? Perhaps the many redundant Windpumps could be adapted to house some form of technology that did not ruin the landscape.
