Extra High Voltage (EHV) Towers

AusNet Services owns over 13,000 EHV towers as part of its Electricity Transmission Network. EHV towers are the predominant electrical structure used for hosting telecommunications equipment due to their height, prevalence and widespread distribution across Victoria.

Communication Towers

AusNet Services’ Communication Towers are purpose built structures that offer an excellent solution to customers with broadcasting requirements. They are up to 60m in height, generally located on hill tops with good lines of sight to surrounding areas and population centres.

Distribution Poles

Many distribution poles are suitable for hosting telecommunications equipment. In general street poles with an existing public light installed, or poles carrying shielded low voltage wires may be suitable. The suitability of each pole will be assessed as part of the application process.

Fibre Optic Cable

AusNet owns the third largest Fibre Optic network in Victoria, servicing many of the state’s regional centres. Select Solutions can offer customers Dark Fibre services with splices points available at regular intervals along the fibre routes.
