Mobile phone coverage at Buller is non-existant around the lower runs such as Wombat, Federation, Burnt Hut etc.

Was up there last Tuesday and noticed some brand new equipment that has just been installed (past 2/3 weeks) onto the following lifts

Top of Burnt Hut on the Hut, facing down the run
Southside OR Bull Run Lift about 3/4 towers from the top

Anyone know who/what these are for ? Appears to be for a 3G network based on the type of antenna. I should have taken a photo for Louie

Not yet connected at the wires are just hanging out the side. But very strange to be installing this Mid-Winter! Normally this type of work is done over Summer. Perhaps the tech/s took the time to go skiing as well

Not sure that they could have comissioned it that fast though, although I did get Optus reception at the coffee hut down Wombat, but that's mainly due to my newer phone I think.

Be interested to find out which network it is! Probably Telstra, but maybe Optus. Never seen that type of equipment install before though!
