Three network 5G roll out making gains

so councils can't refuse planning permission.
That would be dangerous.... specially as it wouldn't just be mobile operators that would get use of such permission and likely start seeing a repetition of the cable rollout days where pavements/roads/land got royally ****ed up in many areas.

The push should still be on BT to get fibre rolled out faster and properly,

I still maintain that mobile networks need to be made more reliable but by having people using them for home fixed connectivity is only going to impeed that.

Note: We all forget that when it comes to it, Three is just a baby, and now its in its final teen years living with parents and now the struggle of going independant is on.

What they need is better legislation to underpin the importance of broadband connectivity and qualify it as part of the nations infrastructure, so councils can't refuse planning permission.
Hear hear!

I dunno about anyone else but in my locality they royally dig up the same roads month after month anyway, so this wouldn't have any impact for me in rural Nottinghamshire at all.

I thought the entire UK had teams of guys digging up the same stretch of road every month? you mean that isn't the case JP?
Certainly is in Mansfield & Ashfield.. Along with the specialist teams of painters who go and paint new white lines across the existing potholes.

Need a Skilled team to make the word "Slow" Readable when its in 3d up and down across a 6in deep pothole!

I know what you mean, (i'm in Rainworth) and don't get me started on potholes..... I had a 12x10inch deep pothole (hidden in the shadow of a bus shelter) kindly snap a front spring on my car 3 years ago, the patch method works a treat when its the collapsed sewer under it that is the issue.

Its still the same today. I'd rather look like a bad driver swerving into the middle of the road daily than have a repeat of that incident again.

Bus passengers who don't stop at that location must think they're taking a ride on the Ninkynonk!

Its worse in an Electric Car, I have a 750kg Battery under my car Potholes feel you are falling off the edge of the world with all the extra weight..

You can check when your local mast was last updated by using google street view and history. Mine was about 3 years ago.
Street view haven't even updated mine yet so the images are still of the mast before it was revamped

My post gone. :(

2nd try. Proposed mast in Grimsby, 20m high on roundabout, much ruckus. Build by 3 for EE reported by local rag.

NE Lincs planning has a Prior Approval for a 15m Three/EE replacement near the roundabout at Morrisons/McDonalds on Laceby Road. Subsequent full planning application for 18m mast on the other-side of the road has been withdrawn?

I'm not seeing anything on planning there (yet) perhaps the local newspaper has someone on the inside of the planning department. Doesn't look like the worst area for current coverage but a taller mast, with,presumably 5G and low band too, would help both coverage/penetration into buildings and speeds

I have contacted customer service via webchat to see if there is any updates on 5G officially be served at my post code.

They told me upgrade works are happening in my area. As normal no network can provide time frame on the works as they can encouter problems, complexity of the work at the mast location etc...

With Three network its hard to believe as what customer service say you wait 6 months to 1 year still no upgrades or improvements just credits being added to your account.

I can see Three network are trying there best to roll out 5G in my area much of it refused.

Has anyone ever seen engineers working on a rooftop mast installing 5G / maintenance work or 5G monopole be maintained.

Twice I seen BT/ EE do some maintenance work being done on the 5G monopole next to my building
