Magdalene to Help EE and Three UK Deliver New Mobile Sites

Thursday, January 9th, 2020 (12:01 am) - Score 4,103

Infrastructure firm Magdalene (part of M Group Services) has signed a new 5 year deal to help develop and upgrade 4G / 5G mobile sites (e.g. Masts) for Mobile Broadband Network Ltd (MBNL), which is the Joint Venture between Three UK and EE (BT) that is responsible for the management and deployment of their shared sites.

Under the terms of the agreement, Magdalene will support the delivery of MBNL’s Notice to Quit (NTQ) and Towers & Antennas (T&A) operations. For NTQ the company will be expected to ensure network coverage is maintained throughout the transition between site decommissioning and the sourcing and deployment of a replacement site.

Magdalene will also provide end-to-end services to support MBNL’s T&A programme, which includes upgrades, new build and construct only workstreams across an estate of 21,000 UK urban and rural mast sites. The delivery of both projects is scheduled to begin in January 2020.

Paul Brewster, Magdalene Head of Mobile, said:

“We are delighted to embark on this new agreement with MBNL. This framework agreement demonstrates Magdalene’s evolving mobile infrastructure service strategy and our expertise and experience in delivering essential telecom infrastructure roll-outs will be instrumental in our support of this important network improvement programme.

Magdalene will support MBNL’s NTQ programme, managing the removal of former sites from the network, as well as the acquisition, design and build of suitable replacement host sites through the deployment process working with all stakeholders including local authorities and site providers.

MBNL’s fast-paced T&A programme presents another, equally exciting opportunity for Magdalene. Delivering this programme of work will call upon our experience, flexibility, and speed of response as MBNL builds new infrastructure or upgrades existing assets to meet the growing technology and capacity demands of EE and Three customers.”

We’re likely to see a lot of this sort of activity between the rollout of 5G and the new £1bn Shared Rural Network (SRN) plan, which won’t just result in new masts / sites being built but may also cause the removal of some unnecessary sites.

    Plusnet are using EE which is absolutely useless in my area of Norfolk so much improvement is needed

      Just to note that yes plusnet do use EE but dont have access to all the EE bands particularly the 800mhz one for good distance or inside building coverage.

    • Avatar Jon

      Problem with plusnet is they don’t use the 800 frequency layer which EE do.

    This is a bit like Cornerstone who do O2/Vodafone. I live in the middle of the rural countryside. So this is all very welcome.

    Just moved to three from o2 and the signal and drop outs are shocking on mobile data in merseyside

    I use the 3 broadband service and is good enough to provide full service capacity at about 68mbps to two flats.
    One below the other meaning I only needed to pay for one service rather than two.
    Am impressed will be using on a further two flats next to eachother.
    So total cost will be £34 as opposed to £68.

    Far cheaper than Talk Talk and better speeds
    Am impressed with the 3 broadband offer.
