Tales of a Network Engineer

Hey everyone,

 

If anyone knows the ins and outs of keeping Britain connected, it’s our network engineers. That’s why we’ve asked them to share their most memorable tales, fun facts and network insights – starting with their favourite site disguises.

 

As demand for our services increases, they’ve become used to installing cell sites in more obscure locations, to optimise coverage without obstructing local landscapes. Here are some of the chosen ones - let us know how you rate them below!

Which are your favourites – cranes, churches or chimneys?

What do you think of these unique cell sites and if you had to pick a favourite which one would it be?

I do like the chimneys! I also think the crane one is really cool. 

 

There's one that looks like a tree near my place, I'll have to grab a photo of it some time to share with you guys.

@madasaf1sh the cranes are really clever! All the disguises are really well done and you wouldn't notice half of them if they were not pointed out.

Cranes get my vote, but on all of them its great use of the available space, and they're so well hidden from view
