Vincent Tchenguiz has joined forces with defence technology firm QuinetiQ to develop a mobile phone mast that can be used by several network operators

The Future

A piece hidden away in the Financial Supplement to yesterday's Mail on Sunday:

"Property tycoon Vincent Tchenguiz has joined forces with defence technology firm QuinetiQ to develop a mobile phone mast that can be used by several network operators. Until now, phone companies have each used their own masts, but with £15 million of backing from Tchenguiz, QuinetiQ has developed an aerial that can handle multiple operators. Quintel, the joint-venture company set up be Tchenguiz and QuinetiQ, has developed the masts over the past five years and the first two have just been installed. One in Cheshire was originally a Vodafone site, which the 3 network can now run off, while one in Staffordshire now accommodates Vodafone ans 3. Quintel chief executive Gary Dawson said the networks had little choice. 'To deliver 3G effectively across the UK, mobile operators each need to build in the region of 10,000 more 3G base stations', he said. 'However, because of a commitment made to the Government to halt the proliferation of phone masts, networks must think more laterally - which means sharing.' Quintel is looking at 40,000 potential sites where its technology could replace existing masts."

TETRA Airwave, owned in Spain, decrypted and listened to in the USA...

And mobile networks on antenna technology owned by Iranians, developed from defence technology, by a company embroiled in the Bush / Cheney / Carlyle network, hosted in church steeples, and used by the police and emergency services for what Airwave won't do?

And they might be buying a pub near you (Mitchells & Butlers) soon!

What interesting globalisation we have.



Qinetiq is the MoD Science privatisation spin-off criticised for making loads of dosh for the Carlyle Group end of last year. They made a deal via business unit QS4, with the Church of England, to supply multi-user antennae in church towers and steeples.

But just because an old GSM mast can be shared doesn't put it in the right place for 3G, so it doesn't solve many of the problems, just reduces planning hassle for some.

Signal characteristics remain the same as before per operator, this is just a way of handling multiple protocols simultaneously. Presumably the total power of QS4 antenna setup is the sum of what would have been produced separately.
