Is $8000 a year enough for you to have a 40-metre National Broadband Network (NBN) tower installed in your backyard?

Not for the Righetti family in Smeaton, Northern Victoria. The couple refused the deal to have a tower on their property for the fixed wireless long-term evolution network to be rolled out by the NBN. They are now also fighting a proposal to have the tower built on the land next door.

NBN Co's one of the big boys now. You're not a mobile telecommunications company unless some local resident is complaining about you wanting to build a tower near their house.

Full Spectrum delivers you all the latest NBN news, and keeps you up to date with the hustle and bustle of the telco industry.
