Uncertainty prevails throughout the business world, and has done for some time, but none more than in the provision of telecommunications sites to the leviathan providers - EE, Vodafone and friends. David and Goliath (x 100,000, in reality) springs to the mind of any former Sunday School pupil.

Throughout the ten year onslaught of ‘phishing exercises’ into rent reductions, site removal threats and upgrade demands, we have remained stalwart, treating each case on merit, and without personal prejudice (which has been very trying at times!). The result is that our clients are better placed for what is coming than most.

Parliament is racing a new telecommunications Bill through, and it seems that little will stop it. The content is not good, unless you happen to hold a licence as a telecommunications provider. All landowners / site provides should proactively seek advice, now!
