Mobile phone masts help phone companies build stronger, more reliable signals. They can be on private property with the consent of the property owner. Though numerous debates have broken out over their possible health risks, no hard data has proved that there are adverse effects to locating one on your property. Keeping a phone mast on your property may come with a few benefits, both to you and nearby cell phone subscribers.

Signal Strength

The most noticeable benefit of having phone masts around will be your cell phone's signal strength. Masts help to spread cell phone signals across great areas and will boost signal strengths for a considerable distance surrounding the mast. This means that phone calls sound better, text messages travel faster, and data transfers more rapidly when you access the Internet on your phone.

Service Area

Phone masts are just small links in the massive chain of a cell phone network. Each mast helps to extend the service area of a given company just a little further, meaning that the company with the most phone masts in the most locations will likely have the largest service area. With more phone masts around, the chances of you finding your phone in "Roam" or without a signal will decrease.

Leasing Benefits

When a phone company wants to erect a phone mast on private property, the owners of that property have to consent to having the mast built on their land. The phone company will usually pay a leasing fee or one-time permission fee, which can often be substantial.
