This page will include substantial information about mobile phone masts in Southampton, including the spectrum and technologies they broadcast, their backhaul and photos. At the time this page was created, Southampton was a Vodafone Host Beacon Nokia zone about to undergo South Vendor Swap to Ericsson. The hope is to document these swaps, alongside masts from EE and 3.
