Better connectivity in the North
Telstra is looking to increase 4G and 5G coverage capacity in Darebin’s north to provide better connectivity for mobile phone users and faster internet speeds in the area. To do this, Telstra wishes to replace an existing 30-metre light pole at Bundoora Oval, Bundoora Park, with a 35-metre telecommunications pole.
Amplitel (part of the Telstra Group)has applied to Council for a 20-year lease for this pole. As part of this, we wish to gain any community feedback on the proposal, so that we can consider this in the lease decision and forward feedback to Amplitel for its consideration.
A bit of background info
Telstra’s tower infrastructure group Amplitel would install this pole, reattaching ights for the oval at their current height and installing telecommunications equipment 5 metres higher.
The replacement would require the oval lights to be non-operational for approximately 2 weeks at a time agreed to by users of the sports club, Darebin Council and Amplitel to minimise the impact on sports field operation.
