Mumbai’s BEST to Lease out Space at 12 Depots for 4G Antennae

Comments Off on Mumbai’s BEST to Lease out Space at 12 Depots for 4G Antennae 16

The BEST plans to lease out space at 12 depots from Colaba to Kandivli to allow installation of ground-based masts (GBM)s for 4G service in the city.

The GBMs is a freestanding structure, which supports antennae at a height and is similar to a cell tower.

BEST committee members on Tuesday, however, opposed the installation of the poles on various grounds, ranging from radiation risks to the low rates at which the contract was being awarded to the telecom agency. The contract has now been withheld for a few days. “The ready reckoner rates quoted by the BEST are low. We are giving our land at a low rent, which is not acceptable. Besides, there could be hazards of radiation risk,” said panel member Kedar Hombalkar. Original post at ET Telecom
