Western Bay of Plenty District Council is hoping for a successful proposal to install a cell phone tower at TECT All Terrain Park.
“Cellphone reception is extremely patchy. If you hold it at the right angle and grit your teeth you might get a bar.”

Great to see some positive news regarding cellphone towers. They DO NOT emit radiation (nor do microwave ovens). Furthermore, towers use only 2 watts of power, your average domestic microwave uses 800 or more watts of power. A great assett for commuters and locals alike.


This stuff makes me lol.

If a cellphone tower only used two watts of power, then solar would be waaayyy cheaper than a mains connection.

Interesting subject though, i see in places like china they are erecting solar powered cell sites. Does vodafone have any in NZ?
