A 5G mast is being proposed for a Nottinghamshire village.
The 18m mast, which will increase mobile internet speeds in the area, is planned for a grass verge in Calverton.
The applicant said the mast will be close to Colonel Frank Seely Academy, which has been informed of the plans.
5G is the fifth generation of mobile internet connection, following on from 3G and 4G.
It allows for faster upload and download speeds and also enables more devices to connect to the internet at the same time.
The application sent to Gedling Borough Council said: “This site is to give coverage to the surrounding area and link other sites into the Network. This is as part of a project to give 5G coverage to the surrounding area.
“The installation is looked upon as being a minimal modern telecoms installation necessary to extend high-speed mobile coverage to this part of Collyer Road, Calverton.
“As this mast is a 5G installation, to work it needs to be close to those who will benefit from the technology.”
A further three equipment cabinets would also be built nearby.
There are already 5G masts in many parts of Nottinghamshire and plans for further installations in other parts of the county.
A decision on the plans will be made by planning officers before September 2021.
