Mobile Phone Masts in the United Kingdom

Mobile phone masts, also commonly known as cell towers, are critical to provide the services we use everyday on mobile phones, such as the ability to call, text and use mobile data while on the move. The pages below contain images, schematics and detailed information explaining the masts used by the UK's Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) Vodafone, O2, EE and 3 to broadcast 2G, 3G and 4G.

Monopole Masts are compact masts used by the MNOs to provide signal to an area in a visually unobtrusive manner, leading to their ubiquitous use in urban and sensitive locations. They can usually be configured to carry all the frequencies that a traditional tower can, permitting 2G, 3G and 4G operation.
