About the Telebelly
The Telebelly platform is a fully-customizable multipurpose infrastructure.

“It’s a trash and recycling bin that doubles as your free link to the world, which Louisville officials say is the first innovation of its kind to be deployed in the world. The bins [Telebelly] will bring free Internet access to residents, businesses and visitors at two of our busiest bus stops.”
“For the first time in the world, we will enable public visitors and tourists to experience this unique hybrid concept [Telebelly], as well as contribute to keeping our destinations clean and “green”. We are proud and pleased.”
“This [Telebelly] ends up being a location where we can extend that site to allow other equipment to be deployed right there. Where there’s waste and recycling, there’s densities of people with mobile devices. Within a cabinet like this, we have the ability deliver multi-carrier small cell solutions all concealed right on the streetscape.”
