This site is all about the very latest and advanced mobile phones available, however we rarely think about the network infrastructure behind the magic. This mast / cell tower / transmitter (whatever you want to call it) recently appeared a few miles from where we live. Sure, the infamous “flat spot” of network coverage has now been sorted, but on a walk with the dog you almost don’t want to see this sticking out of the ground complete with microwave transmitters and about a dozen seperate panels pointing in every direction.
I’m guessing this is where the “not in my back yard” feelings come to the surface. Everyone wants a good mobile signal, but no-one really wants to see this near their home.
