Telecoms giant EE has submitted an application to upgrade a 25-mast to Bath and North East Somerset Council. The proposal, which is part of the company’s plan to roll out 5G to the area, says that they could also install equipment at another site in close proximity as an alternative.
The application says: “It is anticipated that the next generation of smart phones will be only a small part of wider mobile connectivity.
“The first generation provided voice calls, the second generation allowed basic data such as texting and the third generation offered internet access and the development of apps.
“Since then the smart phone has developed further and the fourth generation has brought video and faster data speeds, allowing the integration of the smart phone into wider use.
“The next generation of mobile technology is 5G and brings a revolutionary approach to managing spectrum and greatly increasing data speeds.
“The advantages this presents range from near-instant downloads of HD films to connected cars, smart medical devices and smart cities”.
