Pretty sure thats inactive now since they upgraded the rooftop mast at Clafe House.
Why would they deactivate a 5G mast unless it’s not 5G at all?

Unless its been replaced recently its never been 5G mast, used to be a single band mast and then had the shrough upgraded to add multiband antennas and since got decommisioned.
When I moved to the area in 2016 there was no monopole thats why im thinking its a 5G monopole cause if it was a 4G monopole it would come up on cellmapper

Looks similar to one that was near me, band 3 only. Was always there but wasn't broadcasting or in use, even though it was still on.

A newer mast was put in place around the corner and this was removed and the new one went live. a week or two ago.

Probably the same thing happening here. Check planning applications for your area.

Its a Three Network mast as the document says.

I thought you already knew this, you mentioned this mast a good while back when talking about the 5G broadband.

As you've found its an old single band mast, EE used to broadcast on this mast too but stopped some time back as mentioned.

There is unlikely to be a 5G upgrade done on this mast due to lack of space on the street and as can be seen its backhauling over wireless link with Clare House anyway.

Three continues to rollout new masts and band 32 upgrades around brum, a few new masts spotted on my cellmapper recently just passing, better connection reliability coming in too.

Still they are suffering getting permissions though.

I thought it was an EE monopole mast as it said T-Mobile I was wrong I knew some T-Mobile mast are Three Network how can you tell without looking.

Another thing if Three network applications are being refused on 5G roll out why cant they just make there existing 2G/3G, 4G monopole also support 5G if they put in application for an existing monopole to be replaced like they did before makes sense.

Your right its backhauling.

When you see a monopole in the streets you straight away think its a 5G monopole

Poles have no physical capacity to do so, there is weight limits to what can be mounted and again where would 5G radio equipment go.

Example, look here https://goo.gl/maps/yZbVcqgraiFEbB5i7

This is the same sort of setup local to me but where EE and Three upgraded to 5G, the ammount of cabinets and furniture required is alot.

Thats identical to the one that was/is near me in Hull. The older smaller mast was there and the newer mast you've shown was installed 100ish metres away around the corner.

They removed the old mast and then the new one went live.

Yeah pretty standard practice I guess, the difference with the one highlighted by @zakir1988 is that there is a newer rooftop installation which features EE and Three's 5G networks which cover the area.

I dont unless I see exposed massive MIMO as 5G can't work through a shroud + that design of monopole is 4G. The ones with all exposed panels (phase 7&8) are 5G and that's when I think oooh a 5G mast.
