MTN's Bright Idea
30 Aug 14
MTN Street Pole Tower
MTN has a bright idea: use street lights as cell phone towers.

MTN plan to use street lamps as cell phone towers and impose minimal impact on city landscapes.

Our cities are becoming denser with new buildings which limits the coverage of a cell phone tower. Building more towers in densely populated areas simply looks horrible (even towers which try to look like trees are eye sores). 

MTNs plan to use street poles is an innovative solution. Each pole site will be able to cover a radius of about 400–600 meters and may also provide residents with additional security since security cameras are likely to be installed. Hopefully the agreement with City Power also means the maintenance of street lights actually providing light on our roads – but that will have to wait to be seen.
