Just questioning why my mobile phone now only has 1 bar in the Carters Beach area and in Westport.  It used to have at least 4 bars?

Hi Deb.

We had a cell site at the cement works at Cape Foulwind.

When Holcim shut it down last year we had to decomission the cell site as well.

FYI we built a brand new cell site which is located on a hill roughly half way between Wilsons Lead Road and the intersection of State HW's 67 and 6. Its got a much large coverage footprint however yes it's signal is weaker at the coast around the cape.
