New Business Opertunity : Install New Tower on My Property

[ Edited ]

Good Day Good People!

 

Does anyone perhaps know who I could contact to arrange for a Telkom tower to be installed on my property?

I cannot find a Telkom adress anywhere

 

We live in Winterskloof, Pietermaritzburg and we very weak signal for 3G and no signal for LTE

 

I thought if Telkom could install a tower on my property it would not only help myself but then the whole area could benifit?

 

Thanks for any assistance

You don't want to be too close to a tower because then you'll fall in it's 'signal shadow'. If you have money, you can buy a wireless outdoor antenna booster. This requires mounting an antenna outside the house and running cable to a smaller antenna in the house. Typical cost of this solution starts over R4000. A cheaper option is a wired indoor antenna booster. This requires having a cable connect from the phone to an indoor antenna. These solutions range from about R400 upwards, depending on the size of the antenna.

 

Or you can try what this guy did: http://www.ciena.com/insights/articles/How-I-built-my-own-mobile-cell-tower-prx.html
