Our thanks to Eli from Lothlorien for the following information.

A few weeks ago I asked Spark if and when they intend to provide cell coverage from the new tower on Woodcocks hill. I have finally heard back that ”…there are plans to upgrade next month….”
Next month being September.

Cheers & Kind Regards

RE: Cell network expansion/coverage
Hi Eli,
Good news, there are plans to upgrade next month, so fingers crossed that the new tower will provide the level of coverage you need!
There are 3 sectors on this tower which point in particular directions so customers in direct line of site to those sectors should experience good coverage.
