Have you ever wondered where your nearest mobile phone tower was? What services does it support? How fast are the 4G Internet speeds in your area? How far does the signal reach? Which is the best phone provider for you?
If so, this app is for you!
Updated weekly with the latest tower information from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), this app presents all you ever wanted to know about your local mobile phone towers in a fun and interactive format.
The app includes details of Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, NBN, TPG, TV, pagers, government, CBRS and aviation transmitters!
Completely FREE and without advertisements!
The Follow GPS feature (on the top toolbar) will cause the screen to relocate to your current position every 5 seconds and the screen will stay on. Use this feature while travelling but remember to turn it off when you just want to explore other towers manually.
This application will monitor the cell tower connected to your phone to assist in displaying tower information to you. Tower and phone information is sent to our servers and to OpenCelliD / Mozilla Location Services. A marker will be added to your map view when this happens. No personally identifiable information is collected, other than your Android Id and your location.
Unfortunately, Samsung devices (including the S8) do not implement all network interfaces correctly (or at all) so you will find some features will not work. This is mainly limited to the current network frequencies but may also prevent detection of which tower you are using. This is a firmware problem so only Samsung can fix this. You can still use this app to browse the local towers.
