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.
