Improved Mobile Reception
- Improved Mobile Reception
- WERC and Vodafone have entered into an agreement under which Vodafone may install antennae to improve mobile network strength in Lower Wentworth South. Areas expected to show marked improvement include Abbots Drive, Badgers Hill, Brock Way, Virginia Drive, Virginia Avenue, Monks Road, Nuns Walk, parts of Woodlands Road East and Woodlands Road West, and any associated roads. Other areas may show incremental improvement.
After installation of a traditional tower was rejected, Vodafone agreed to use an existing tree to support the antennae, a technique seldom used in the UK. Local tree specialists were consulted and approved the installation as non-hazardous to the tree. Service to both Vodafone and O2 customers is expected to improve. Installation is anticipated in Spring 2016.
