Cardiff Mobile Phone Masts

This page features substantial information about mobile phone masts from all four mobile network operators (Vodafone, O2, EE, 3) in the Welsh City of Cardiff, including the spectrum and technologies they broadcast and photos.

The city was the first to receive EE's L21 (EE L21 Refarm using Huawei's 5507 RRU) in April 2018.
It was also one of the first cities to gain Vodafone B38 MaMIMO on 4G Vodafone UK 4G MaMIMO.
