A 20-METRE high telecom pole is set to be installed in Rosyth as part of efforts to meet demands on the network.

CK Hutchison Networks (UK) Ltd are proposing to install a radio base station on Primrose Lane in order to provide the latest 3G, 4G and new 5G technologies to the Camdean area.

A letter sent to local councillors said the proposed column will also ensure that new 5G coverage can also be provided

"Mobile telecoms networks are now ubiquitous throughout the UK," it explained. "It is an expectation that an individual can connect and use their mobile phone whenever and wherever they are.

"The radio base station will also meet the extra demands on the network in this area as more people use internet enabled handheld devices.

"It is a densification project for the operator’s network to fill holes in service provision including coverage and capacity. This will enable the operator’s customers to be able to use their handheld devices without calls being dropped or buffering occurring where there is a gap in the operator’s network coverage and capacity ability.

"A site in this location will fill the gap in service provision and provide high quality, reliable, advanced 3G, 4G and 5G to this urban area of Camdean."
