ESN Finalizes 50th Extended Area Service Mast for Rural Coverage

20th Aug 2019

The U.K. Emergency Services Network (ESN) said it met its commitment to build 50 Extended Area Service (EAS) masts by the end of July. The EAS program is responsible for providing ESN covering in remote and rural areas of Great Britain by building a new network of masts.

These sites are in addition to those new sites being provided by commercial provider EE. EAS will extend ESN coverage for police, fire and rescue, and ambulance crews in these areas.

The completion of the 50th EAS mast was completed the last week of July, an ESN post on LinkedIn said.

“Although the primary objective is to facilitate the delivery of ESN coverage within the extended area (the most remote parts of the U.K.), masts will be built where possible to facilitate the delivery of commercial coverage and will be made available to multiple network operators,” the ESN post said.
