Just checked and was going to say that there's not 5G coverage within c.50 miles (as the crow/signal flies) but on checking EE was very surprised to see they have 5G in Kyle of Lochalsh and Fort Augustus! Surprised


I'm guessing BUTEC might explain the signal in Kyle, but unless the MoD are also Nessie hunting, it doesn't quite explain Fort Augustus! You may have seen that there were applications for masts at Killilan, Corran and above Cluanie as part of the "shared rural network" which aims to get coverage into the really remote spots in the hills, but I'm not sure that they will be much use in getting signal down to you or to the populated fringes of the sea lochs.

I wonder if the Sheikh is funding Killilan?
There was no coverage on any of the networks when I was there in the summer.
Do wonder how they'd do the backhaul from there and Corran.
Glenelg is still languishing with c.500kbps on BT when the community run mesh is out of action, which is was most of last week.
I think Cluanie has okay 4G coverage. Fairly sure the fibre run is straight down the A87 at that point.

We're on 4G with a couple of networks and I've got Gigabit Openreach at home so all good on that front.
Still lose mobile coverage on the way to Kyle and up the glen though.

The newer versions are supposedly better and the trains of them are visible after they first launch. After that, they navigate to their final orbits. There are more than 6,000 up there now, with Amazon and the Chinese government intent on doing similar.

You know you must always protect yourself from 5G. You don't know what viruses you might catch or how it will control your thoughts. Laughing

Tracking them all to ensure safe launch to orbit for other stuff will get ever trickier.

Yes, each of them is pretty small and the "shell" of orbit that they sit in is very big (~2.1x10^8 sq miles at IIS altitude, for example), but it does feel like we're taking several steps at a time towards the Kessler Syndrome.
