CK Hutchinson Networks (UK) Ltd has formally filed an application to install an 18m high 5G mast in Kingsdown Way to Southampton City Council. In the application, the firm says the mast will increase download times and "lead to a more predictable and consistent performance."
So far, the council is yet to receive objections from residents but is yet to make a decision on the plans.
In November, Hythe residents were successful in halting the construction of a 5G mast that would have towered over their homes. A 24m pylon was scheduled to be erected beside Southampton Road but protesters stood between a crane and another part of the site for more than two hours.
