* Footnote:

The LTE2300 service provided by NBN Co at this site is not a mobile telephone service but a fixed wireless link for internet connections. Measurement of demodulated pilot signals of the LTE signals was not performed and extrapolation of the LTE signal was not possible. The reported values indicate the contributions from a mixture of pilot and traffic signals present at the time of the measurement.
