Of interest to those concerned with mobile reception and coverage in Dumfries and Galloway, Vodafone Limited has entered into an agreement with Telefónica UK Limited, locally known as “O2”, to operate and manage a single network grid across the UK using joint venture vehicle known as Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Ltd (CTIL)
The upside is that their network infrastructure can be shared but will still allow running two separate networks.This could mean a net reduction in the number total number of base stations which could reduce the environmental impact of network development.
There are some suitable existing sites within D&G that could be upgraded to provide 4G coverage (did you say “4”?) subject to the appropriate consultation on technical and planning requirements. See the PDF attachment for site details.
