Hi, 

I'll try to take a picture this week, however quite a few months ago a rather large generator and what looks like a temporary cellular tower have been erected on the side of the road (literally on the side of the road, taking up a carpark space and has been fenced off). Its not listed on the cell sites map and Id say its been there ever since the start of the year. 

Anyone know?

So is it there for a set purpose? Or just hanging out because it needs somewhere to stay?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I did see that the other week and wondered what it was too. I don't think the drunk girl using the fence to stay balanced while she threw up was part of that thing though. Lol.
