Plans to install a 5G antenna on the roof of a kindergarten in Reading have been approved.

According to the plans, the new antenna will improve 2G, 3G and 4G coverage in the area and provide 5G coverage.
According to a report from the council: “The updated infrastructure offers high download speeds for mobile devices and more reliable, faster telephone connections, as well as an increase in the capacity to provide services to a larger number of people at the same time and an improved service for the emergency network.
“The telecommunications base station is shared by the mobile operators EE and Hutchinson 3G.”
It is also said that this project will “reduce the need for multiple pylons located elsewhere” in the local area.
