Why a whole lot of new masts are lining up
ADVANCING technology is the main reason why so many applications for phone masts are beginning to sprout up in the Wharfedale area, according to to a local councillor.
The technology used by many mobile phone companies today is Third Generation - more commonly known as `3G' - which essentially turns phones into multimedia players, with the capacity to download music and video clips.
Councillor Chris Greaves (Con, Wharfedale) told villagers attending the Menston Neighbourhood Forum last week that the Government has sold off 3G licenses for billions of pounds, and mobile phone operators need the infrastructure to run the services.
He said the previous 2G service required fewer but larger masts. However, the 3G service requires more but smaller masts.
