wreck90: This is right outside the window and her property will have dropped in value.

Would anyone be happy?


It's interesting to see this claim being used all the time in the cellsite battle - and yet not a single person seems to be able to produce a single piece of evidence to back the claim.

Surely there must be an anti cellsite campaigner somewhere in the country who has followed through with their threats of moving and has has sold their house and got and sold for well under it's value. Why haven't we heard from them? Smile


On what basis do you think a property with a celltower has the same value as without?

My reasoning is that there are many people who dislike celltowers and this reduces the buyer pool for such a property. A buyer will always look for reasons to reduce price, and a classic would be, 'hhm, nice house, shame about the celltower, will offer you 20k less". 

Just because you are unaware of evidence does not mean there is none. 

In fact, there have been studies and they do show statistically significant decreases in property value although every situation is different (outlooks, distance etc) and the decrease is not huge. 




And exactly the same arguments could be used that houses with no cellular coverage. I'm aware of an area in Houghton Bay where there is no coverage from any network. The person selling it used to get continual feedback that the house was nice but there was no mobile coverage.

eXDee: But does this style greatly impact coverage of the site or make it more complex to deploy?


(again from the tour) as I understand because they are much lower than a full site they don't give as broad coverage meaning more of them.  The full site is the preferred option (but much harder to get resource consent for)

Generally speaking it's a trade off between fewer taller towers and more shorter towers.

Taller towers are uglier but can cover a wider area so you need less of them.

Have you noticed all the approved comments on the article are from people against the tower?

I think it's wrong she got no response on the issue, but i think it's stupid of her to take umbridge in the first place. These things have to go somewhere if you want reception. 

What's the bet she is not a 2degrees customer and had good coverage on her network already...

Hehe, I used to walk around there and my (Vodafone) phone would say sites like "CookStrait" "Blenheim" "Seddon" "Ward" and the most amazing one I saw one night was "Clarence"...a LONG way away.
