Its difficult because we have only had two people call up and actually register their interest in the street so we cant break even on costs. Last time I looked at it, we kept coming across people saying they were already in a contract.
But I am keen to do something for the community - we just need to build a break-even business case which unlocks some govt funding which has been pre-approved.
Give me a call/email and we can chat some more. I have some information which the neighbours might find interesting regarding that particular street for the RBI2 project but I cant talk publicly about it yet
I understand the antennas need to be mounted like this
on the pole so they are on 45 degree angles and a few inches apart. Someone else can confirm.
Having them vertical or horizontal on the pole I dont think will help because people dont hold cellphones like that and the antennas on the mast are designed to give the best angle for cellular use.
The other issue is the shape of the terrain around you is perfect for signal reflections.
The bits and bytes flow in a direct path, but when there is a hill, a reflection occurs and some of the bits and bytes come in a moment later which means the error correction algorithm needs to work overtime slowing you down.
Some radio technologies take advantage of this, others have problems. I am not sure about 4g RBI.
